The above pictures are of the camera in it's original condition.  Read on to see it’s transformation.

My best friend collects vintage cameras and the other day I was at her house and noticed on that was broken.  I took it home and gave it new life.  It's going to be a surprise!

This is hers.  The back is gone but don’t be sad because now it’s a cute little clock!

I hope she likes it!


  1. This is so awesome! Thank you so so much. I love you.

  2. I'm so glad you like it! It will look great in your new house!

  3. This is so cute! I especially like the red clock arms! Thanks for sharing.

  4. How did you do this?

    1. Well the front of the camera broke off from the back so the front piece had exposed gears and stuff that I just removed with a pair of needle-nose pliers. So now the whole back/inside is hollow. Some of the things I removed caused the buttons not to stay in so I glued them in place with craft glue (like E6000). To get the clock arms through, I took the square glass piece out of the shutter and put in a plexiglass square but the plexiglass only cracked on me so that wasn't going to work. I ended up putting the clock arms through on of the screw holes that I made bigger with my drill.


I really really love and appreciate comments, but i hate spam.

Due to the heavy amount of spam comments I've been receiving lately I had to put the word verification up. I know how annoying it can be when you want to leave a comment but I hope you will understand.

Would you be so kind to take the extra step to post your thoughts?
