I was about halfway through sanding when I realized I didn't take a before picture, so this is all you're going to get.
After sanding it, I attached the clock parts and the number stickers. This is the back of it, and it is pretty bleh looking. I wasn't going to sand the back though, it would have taken forever and a day longer.
I think the number stickers were really cool because in certain lights they pretty much blend in to the clock, but when the light catches them, they are bright and shiny! I got a stand from Michaels so it can be hung up on the wall or stood on a desk. My dad really, really liked his gift!
