This was one of the quickest upcycling projects I’d ever done. Here is the story.
When we moved into this house five years ago, I put a glass-and-metal clock on the wall in the entry hall so that everyone of us who had to leave the house on time will have a handy time- reference point. The clock was too small for the location, but it served the purpose. The problem with this arrangement was that one could not easily see the clock from the kitchen. And, since our family breakfasts tended to extend into an infinity with talks with and among humans, dogs, and cats, and, at the same time, at least one of the humans had to go to work on time (well, sort of), a clock was a must in the kitchen. This is why, upon re-doing the kitchen, I moved the clock on one of the walls in it.
