Ugly Clock turned Message Center

I thought I would post a project I did last month since everyone liked the other clock makeover. I seem to be stuck on clocks for some reason. :-) This is another goodwill rescue. I paid $8. Removed the center and added some chicken wire. That was it! Very simple to do. HOWEVER, if trying this at home please take my advice and have someone help you. I did this by myself and without gloves. My hands were all scratched up afterwards.
