My Pier 1 inspired Trompe L'oeil Grandfather Clock is finished--I thought I'd never say those words...
Isn't he handsome?
He's barely 2" deep but stands a whopping 6'6"!
Here's my inspiration.
And here's the process in pictures...
The pattern was drawn and cut from poster board -- he's 6'6" so it took several pieces. Well, half a pattern anyway. I just flipped it over for the other half.
A dear friend gave me this piece of 3/8" exterior bead board. I used a Sharpie to trace around the pattern.
This part takes a while. You can't get in a hurry cutting it out.
A Mouse sander does a great job of sanding the edges.
The wood trim came from my scrap pile.
I mixed several left over paints and came up with this creamy green.
A $1.29 Goodwill find gives it some needed dimension.
Add to that a $10 clock from the Dollar Store and I think I've got a pretty grand clock here.
