Quirky Scrabble Clock & Bed Spring Idea Board

At Remodelista, we like to see rooms that incorporate a mix of modern and vintage. Case in point: this Danish workspace. A wall clock is fashioned from a Karlsson Little Big Time clock with vintage Scrabble tiles affixed to the wall, and a bed spring is repurposed as a freestanding clip board– an ingenious and affordable idea. Here are a few elements to help you recreate the look.

Above: This vintage/modern office was originally spotted on Bolig Liv.

 

Above: The Karlsson Little Big Time Wall Clock is $28.99 from Amazon.

Above: Vintage Scrabble tiles are widely available on Etsy and eBay.

Above: The new Tranetorp Dining Table in white stained oak also functions nicely as a desk; $339 from Ikea.

Unique. At first I thought the clock was made from the scrabble game board--that would be cool. Think I'll look around for an extra...Maybe glue tiles in place to indicate numbers. Oh, I'm liking this idea for my classroom...

Recycle that's a good thing, but the box spring is a little large for a clip board. I also like thinking outside the box.
