Clock Makeover

1,868 Views
This clock is very special to our family. Some may say painting it ruined it's charm, but for me, it brought it back to life, and now I display it center stage. Before, it looked like an old clock that no one noticed, but now you can see all of the beautiful details that you couldn't see before.

    I'm usually partial to natural wood colors, but I really like this. You're right, it does bring out the details.

    I also have a clock like yours that was passed down to me. I haven't gotten the nerve up to paint it but I've toyed with the idea several times. I love that you painted yours! The details do stand out now and if painting it makes you love and appreciate it more, then go for it!

    What a difference the paint made. I think it does make the clock and all its details stand out more. Before I would not have given it a second glance, but now.... a whole new story!

    Thank you! I have it in our foyer, and I pass by it probably 25 times a day. I love it so much more now. My Mom liked it too, so that was a relief! She actually wants me to distress it more.

    If you like it then it's o.k. However I would not paint an antique clock even though you never plan on selling it, it does take away from its's value. Sitting on the wooden wall not noticable, but on the brick wall noticible. I'd have just moved the clock to the brick wall.
