My Grandmother Was Unattractive, So I Gave Her A Makeover!!
Your Grandmother doesn't have to be ugly anymore either! hehehe My friend gave me this vintage Tully Brook Grandmother clock. She thought it was ugly and didn't want it around. I just needed a little time to give her a proper Florida makeover!!
First I took out off the glass door and pulled out the clock. Then I sanded the entire piece, leaving random dark spots to show through the stain I was going to use.
I spray painted the inside of the shelves aqua blue then stained the rest gray.
After it dried, I used wall paper to line the back of the shelves. It looks like rustic/coastal weathered wood!
While the piece was drying, I painted the flowers on the clock face blue. They were a purple/mauve color. I took off the finial at the top an replaced it with a starfish, then trimmed it with rope. I used "patina blue" rub n buff on the knob.(The starfish was on the end of a curtain rod)!
To keep the coastal flow, I added a wood anchor on the bottom and trimmed with rope.
And that's all there was to it! Now my Grandmother is ready for coastal living!! Thanks for lookin' :)
