I found an Eames Era Welby clock at my local thrift store for $6 and knew I had struck gold. As soon as I saw it, I envisioned it as a sunburst and promptly put it in my cart. I am so happy that I did.
How did I make it into a sunburst, you may ask? Simple. Here's how:
I had a clock purchased at Target three years ago that stopped working two years ago (Shows the quality of items made today...as opposed to this Welby that was made in the 60s and still works??? But that is a totally different topic.) and took the back off of it. The back had a convenient circle that allows the Welby's clock mechanisms to poke through. I also wanted a circular base to line up the "sunbursts." The "sunbursts" are actually skewers I found at my grocery store for $2. I bought two packages, one with skinny skewers and one with thicker skewers.
Attached the sunburst portion to the clock and let dry over night. Aren't my Great Northern Bean weights awesome? They worked like a charm.
Voila! A beautiful enhancement of an already pretty cool clock.
