Turn your favorite book into a clock. (Source: instructables)

Why did I never think of this? Of all the clock projects I’ve studied (I’m still trying to find the perfect one for my living room), I never thought that the answer might very well be staring me right in the face.

Instructables.com shows us – in pictures – how to do this ridiculously easy project using a book, clock set and spray paint.

This DIY sparked many other ideas of things I could turn into a timepiece – an old diner menu, a box to a favorite toy… oh, my, the list goes on.

Grab your favorite read and a ruler!
