Framed Beadboard Clock

My BABY sister is getting married next month & so we threw her a Bridal Shower this past week & she requested a CLOCK from me for her gift;)

I was happy to make one for her & she mentioned she would love one like this Beadboard one I did awhile back...

and she also wanted a big "B" in the center & wanted white & chocolate brown. 
I found this design online & fell in LOVE it! I used it as inspiration for the clock I wanted to make.

check it out at THE CLOCK LADY

I rummaged through my scrap wood & found a piece of beadboard, a solid piece of wood & 2 pieces of trim that would be used as "frames"...
I cut them down to size. I believe the beadboard ended up about 28"x28" & the smaller square was about 16"x16", but you could do ANY size, I was just being lazy so I used the width they already were as the size to cut the other side down to:)
Then I cut my TRIM, using a miter saw to cut 45 degree angles and pieced those together & used WOOD GLUE to attach everything to the beadboard. 
Then I painted everything WHITE!
While it dried, I made up a design in my MAKE THE CUT program for my Cricut. Sadly, Make the Cut is no longer compatible with Cricut if you haven't already purchased it:(
I applied the Chocolate Brown Vinyl onto the center of the clock, drilled a hole in the center for the hands & it was DONE!
I hope Mr. & Mrs. Brown LOVE IT!!!
The Scrolly B was the perfect fit for this clock!
Hanging above her bed...
It will actually go in their Family Room when they get their Apartment & hang above Chocolate Brown couches!
