Re-purposed Dorothy Lamour phonograph record cover wall clock
Very few people still listen to phonograph records. Not vinyl, phonograph. I have inherited a very large collection of these albums and currently do not have a phonograph player. Although I do plan on enjoying some of the music in future, some records are so old and damaged they cannot be used anymore. It pains me to let go of this once treasured collection that belonged to my uncle. So I found a way to re-purpose the covers so they could be enjoyed another way.
This piece I made for my parents this Christmas. Each letter is hand enameled in Hunter green onto copper. The plates are attached with copper tacks on a distressed wood mounting board that is painted in Hunter green as well. It now hangs in their mud room above their vintage stove.
