....when it's a spice cupboard.

I got this old clock for about 18 euros a few years ago. It was full of woodworm and the veneer was coming off.
I intended to restore it, but I later inherited a better antique clock. I was in need off a spice cupboard and decided to turn the old clock into something I could use.

Original clock.(with mechanism removed)

OH kindly replaced the glass and put the shelves in it. :)
I didn't put the spindles back as I thought it too fussy.

Still need to make labels for the jars too.

I already have loads of spices, hence the need for the cupboard. ;)

I had a feeling you'd say that!! #-o

Looking forward to seeing the final picture, with all the jars full of lovely coloured spices!

It's already lasted longer than anything from Iquea. I saw one just like that with the mechanism intact going for 10,000 on the telly

:) I had it appraised by my grandad when I first bought it. That's why I knew I wasn't losing out by turning into a spice cupboard. 8-)
