I am not sure if this qualifies as a craft project but the clock is from my stash. It is Craft Room De-Stash Day. My blogger friends and I do a craft project from our craft stash. We can spend up to $10 to complete the project. I decided to do an easy update with paint to restore a clock.
And I didn’t have to buy anything to complete the project. 🙂

My friend gave the clock to me. I assumed it didn’t work and thought of an idea to make it over. But at the last minute, I decided to put in a battery and the clock started ticking! Even better when you think about it.
Of course, I wiped it down and taped off the glass that protects the face. I had some leftover paint from the dresser and used it. The color was so close to the original one but I didn’t mind that. I gave it one coat and went back over it in spots.
The clock face reminded me of the steampunk look. So that is the inspiration to decorate it. I rummaged through my bits and pieces of odd washers, screws and rusty bits. Using glue to secure them, I arranged the bits around the fake alarm clock button.
Paint the bells gray. Once again I had leftover paint from the dresser that worked for the bells. After the paint dried I went back over it with silver craft paint.
Before I removed the paper I sprayed it with a protector. It is an easy update with paint to restore a clock that was headed to the thrift store. So when you see a clock that looks outdated take another look at it to reimagine it with new paint.
