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.
