Well, well. Fancy seeing you all here! Long time no see, right!? Pardon my little break from the blogging world! I needed a few weeks to disconnect and refresh, and that is exactly what I did! I spent little to no time on social media and paused all of my home projects. I’m not gonna lie, it felt good. However, I missed blogging so much! I feel like that is when you know that  your passion really truly is just that! I am ready to jump right back in! And I have a lot on my to-do list! So let’s start with this one.

I planked a clock. Simple as that. It was an easy way to make my cute vintage style clock pop a little bit more. Good ole Chip & JoJo have made the planked wall, or shiplap even more popular than it already was, I thought since I haven’t added that touch yet to our house maybe this project would hold me over until we do. Rational thinking, right?

  • 2ft x 2ft plywood
  • 1 x 2 furring strip
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Staple Gun
  • 5/8″ Brads
  • Saw
  • White Paint
  • Paint Roller
  • Picture Hangers
  • Nails
  • Hammer



-I first started by measuring out six even planks from the 2x2ft piece of plywood at 4in each. (*Note: Six planks ended up being too long for my clock, so when I finished I ended up cutting off the last plank)

– I then used my saw to cut each strip from the plywood.

-Once each of the 6 strips were cut, I used my staple gun, filled it with brads instead of staples, and nailed each piece onto the cut 1x2in furring strips. I used a nickel in between each strip to space them out evenly.

-I also cut a piece of the furring strip to go across the back of the planks so that I could place a nail in the front to hang the clock on. I also added two picture hangers so it would be ready to hang on the wall.

-Next, I painted the planks with a bright white paint and once dry, my clock was ready to be hung!
