SOLD - 1840's Clock Case

Hello, followers of A French Touch! This is Debra's daughter, and I have absconded with the laptop in order to give you a brief writeup of my absolute favourite thing ever repurposed.

This gorgeous clock case is from the 1840s! While it was always lovely, a coat of Old White paint and some clear wax just makes it breathtaking. The hooks added at the bottom are actually one-half of vintage window clasps; I like the idea of being able to hang necklaces off of them. The clock face inside isn't part of the original case, but does come with the piece, and personally I like the slightly off-center look of it peeking through the glass.

My favourite part is the versatility; as long as you have the wall space, this can go pretty much anywhere. Kitchen spice rack with a drying towel on the hooks! Bedroom jewellery display box! Bathroom medicine cabinet for my fancy shmancy makeup collection! In fact, this one might not make it to the store...


  1. Love the versatility of this piece, and the repurposed window clasps for hooks. Great job!

    1. Thank you Sheila! I was tempted to keep this one! :)
