This clock was a wedding present almost 10 years ago from my husband's grandparents. We used it for a long time on our mantel and then it ended up in the attic and I just could not part with because I love his grandparents so much. So, in comes spray paint, wooden appliques, scrapbook paper, a clock face stencil and glaze. The whole project took about half an hour (not including drying time). I love it and it will go well in our "new room".

I spray painted the clock in Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze then sanded the edges using an 80 grit sanding block and finished up with Ralph Lauren Smoke Glaze. If it sounds like I know what I'm talking about it's all wording I've picked up from Shanty2Chic, where you will find me spending a lot of time these days...that is until school starts and Tea & Traditions re-opens on Monday. You MUST visit Shanty2Chic they have recently posted their favorite projects and you will not be disappointed.

I'm sharing this as part of Shanty 2 Chic's link party, be sure to visit and get some AWESOME ideas.
