Recycling an Old clock with Warli designs

The gifts given by our loved ones are always preservable.  However old it is, our heart doesn't allow to discard such gifts. This clock I have also one such gift, which was gifted by one of my friends. It has the pulses framed. Slowly the pulses were getting spoiled.

I didn't want to discard it or give it to someone, as this was a gift from my friend. So thought of giving it different design. I like Warli designs. In my previous post I have shared about the Warli design wall decal.
I unframed the clock and removed the pulses from that.

 Warli paintings are basically made by the tribal people. I always feel Warli designs look very nice with earthy orange and white.So I painted the clock with earthy orange color .

And finally drew the Warli designs on the frame as well as inner parts, in white. And framed it again with glass.

This is how it looks now on the wall, representing  memories of my friend who gifted me this.

Its better to recycle the things, according to the latest trends, rather than throwing or discarding it.  Recycling not only gives new look ,also refreshes the memories associated with it. 

Learning making murals on siporex blocks. Soon will share about the same soon.

Until then-
Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,
