Transforming Time


I bought this vintage clock about 6 months ago because
I really liked the face, but it isn't a high-end clock
and the wood is not great quality, so I knew I would
either remove the face and use it for display, or
attempt to do something to improve its appearance.
First, I gave coat of CeCe Caldwell's Smoky Mountain paint and although
it looked wonderful, the color wasn't right for my living
room or kitchen, so I gave it another coat of Pittsburg Gray
and that ended up being the perfect color to match
the gray window that divides the two rooms.
I did just a tiny bit of distressing in a few spots,
and I love the little touch of color that shows through
with the Smoky Mountain under the gray.  It
wasn't a planned thing, but I'm really happy with that.
Unfortunately,  when my husband removed
the glass face cover, I left it sitting on the kitchen counter
while I painted it and let the paint dry, and
someone didn't see it there and set something on it,
breaking the glass, so it no longer has a glass cover.
Eventually, I may get around to getting a new one for it.
I love the rhythmic ticking sound,
and am thrilled with the new look of my $12 clock.

  2. Great job Angie! Don't forget you can water the paint down too if you ever want to layer colors again. It's super easy to do and almost creates a color wash giving a really neat look when layering over another color.

  7. Looks so much better! I don't know if it's because of the different paint color but the face of the clock looks more aged. I like it!

  10. PS I think without glass is fine, but if you wanted some I bet you can find another clock like that at a garage sale or thrift store. I see them all the time. =)
