Picture of Vintage Book Clock
This is another super easy/inexpensive project with a high class, vintage look. The whole project took me about 45 minutes to complete and it works flawlessly. Follow the easy steps below and you too will have a one of a kind vintage book clock! 

Step 1: Pick a Book

This is the most important part because this will either make or break the look of the final piece. Choose a hard cover book that goes with your decor. The title isn't necessarily important but can be a nice touch. This is a clock that I am putting in my daughters room so the title fits well. Its also nice if there isnt much going on besides the title and the author so the hands are easy to read. Get an old one if possible with yellowed pages, it adds to the vintage look and makes it totally unique.

Awesome idea. Now, I just need a place big enough so I can put it on a shelf....

Great gift for English Major, English Teacher, Librarian, Avid Reader, Etc.
Oooh, that's a fun book to use for that :)
I love it and I want one!
I'll just have to go against my do-not-ever-draw on-fold-or-do-anything-else-with-a-book-than-read-it-attitude. ;)
Except it's missing the numbers.

you could definitely add numbers or tick marks to indicate the hours, I just liked the look of it without.
