No one has ever accused me of being decisive and my clock update is definitely evidence of that. Even when it comes to time (one of the most concrete concepts in existence) I still manage to waffle.
I bought this clock a couple years ago from Family Dollar (not kidding) for $10. I know it SOUNDS like I’m cheap and will do anything to save a buck, but in reality….that is totally the case.
After two years of living with an antiqued clock, I decided to punch it up a bit. It’s made of (a cheap) metal so I wanted to paint it silver (because I STILL had some left!..and) to stay consistent with it’s texture.
I removed the clock face from the frame and set to work spraying it.
But alas, I painted it silver and even did a little dry brushed yellow to access the details, but the spray finisher got me AGAIN! As I mentioned in other silver paint projects, the finisher dulls the metallic sheen, which leaves the item looking grey. Once my grey and yellow clock made it up on my wall I decided that it looked like a paler, cheaper version of itself (which is hard to do, considering it cost so little.)
So… I popped it back out of its happy, little, metal home and sprayed it down with a new color. The prettiest blue ever! EVER! I even painted a frame with it, just because it’s so fantastic…oh AND because I didn’t want to buy a new can…but I digress.
Please excuse my pictures, they were taken at night and I’m not even going to pretend that the bright glow to the left isn’t my attempt at lighting up the place. I am not a photographer; I shouldn’t even be allowed to handle a disposable camera.
