Last fall I got into a bling frenzy (as witnessed by my previous post!) with a clock and decided to do another one. I have had this clock for 15+ years, it was brown and never worked (because I couldn't get the back off to add the battery) but it had potential. One day I figured out how to get the back off and then I was off!!
I painted the clock cream, then started adding bling,
It is a small clock so 1 dollar store bracelet covered the brass around the face.
What was off was the clock mechanism under the glass was brass. I tried and couldn't get the glass off and the brass upset the look of it all. What worked was pasting a dollar store earring onto the glass face. It covered the brass and because the same detail was on the 3 and 9 it worked.
I now have it on my desk.
I love it so much that when I had sold my house I moved into my Mom's for 2 months and I brought it. It doesn't keep great time (the battery needs to be changed about every 5 weeks) but it is a tiny bit of beautiful.
I even liked it under the Christmas tree,
Back to painting!
