New Life For A Dated Clock

I was just about to add this dated clock to our garage sale . We are trying to lighten things up around here and this clock just had too much gold on it and that funny little thingamajig on top.

So, I had Mr. DIY cut it off. The inexpensive clock is made out of a thick styrofoam material, so it was simple to cut through with a kitchen knife. 

Once that was done, I just painted it with  a couple of coats of flat ceiling paint. 

Then, I painted it with some grey deck stain over that. Once it dried, I just sanded the edges to reveal some of the original gold. 

I took this photo in our newly painted office. 

I can't wait to add some finishing touches and show you what it looks like now. 

Hope you are having a good day.



  1. Oh I love it! glad you decided to give this clock a makeover rather than putting it in the garage it is a beauty!

  2. Wow that turned out great! You are so good at these makeovers! I look forward to seeing the rest of the room!

  3. It gives me chills cutting through styrofoam (even the photo of it!) but I think that made all the difference! Love what you've done with it!
