Description: Hi! I wanted a bright, fun clock for the pop-art inspired home office we decorated (a previous Ikea Hacker post), but didn’t find anything I really liked. After making curtains and pillows from Ikea fabric, I had some left over and though it would be the perfect pattern on the clock.
Using Ikea’s TAJMA wall clock for only $10, I created a fun and coordinated clock for this home office. I almost opted for using cut up strips of an Ikea catalogue as I was inspired by another Ikea Hacker post I read this morning (Ikea catalogue curtains – genius!), so any fabric or paper will do just fine.
