"Grandfather Clock" Project

This is another project based on free found stuff.  The clock was part of a series of items that I received free.  It works, and I was inspired to do something but didn't want to spend a lot of money.  I stumbled onto metal shelf brackets on clearance at target.  One package had only a single bracket and I negotiated for it.  I ended up getting the brackets for about $2 each.  That along with scrap lumber we had, paint already in the garage as well as miscellaneous trim I am making an  inexpensive prop standing grandfather clock....kind of not really...but it will be standing.  This is still in progress and needs a paint finish.  The colour right now is just a base coat:
