Painting Time

 Sharing with..http://www.whitespraypaintblog.com/                                      

When I began my love affair of painting furniture, I had no idea what I was getting into. Little did I know that I would no longer see a plain chair, or a simple table the same way. 
Little did I know that thrift store hunting and garage saleing (I say it's a word.) would ever be quite as redundant. Suddenly everything seemed to brim with the potential of change..

This wooden clock was given to me by my dear hubby while we were dating. It was an extravagant gift and I appreciated the sentiment it presented. 

The clock has been silenced for some years now due to it's some what persistent ticking and chiming keeping children awake..
None the less it made a fine statement not to mention conversation piece because of it's silence, in our family room. 

Somehow I couldn't keep myself from seeing this clock in a new light, or shade at least...It took me a long time to gather up the courage to actually paint it,  (way another story!)

Time was beginning to run out on me, so about a month ago I resolutely took it down and began the face lift...

There was no 'turning back' once I had started. I really am quite pleased with the transformation, and happy too that I could use paint I already had and not need to buy any.

After the clock returned to it's place on the wall, and all verdicts were in on Mom's latest painting adventure, needless to say time didn't stand still  but continued to march along.

it's home and the desk objects beside it.

Thank you for taking the time to visit.

  7. Lucy, this clock is so beautiful, and what a special gift from your husband when you were dating. I think it looked gorgeous before, and it looks so pretty after your painted it. You did a great job. I like the story behind the clock as well. :) Oh, and that little desk, so darling. I have one similar to it, and have been wanting to paint it too.

    Have a blessed weekend, Lucy.
