FIGGJO starburst clock

Materials: Figgjo mirror

Needed a “different” wall clock for my granddaughter’s first apartment, but everything at IKEA was ho-hum.  My wife spotted the Figgjo mirror and suggested making it into a clock.  Genius!

A glass shop drilled the hole and I simply added a quartz movement – done.
Figgjo – $20.  Hole – $10.  Movement – $4

Not bad.

    I completely agree about Ikea’s clocks. I wish I had seen this before I bought one somewhere else! :-)
