Hey everyone. I hope this finds you safe and well.
Last year I pulled out several pieces of furniture and decided to clean and paint all of them. Well at least get a coat of primer on.
I have been working on and off with this grandfather clock.
All brown, some gold, and no character!!
Here is the before.
Putting on the primer. Spraying is the way to go!!
I painted this clock with a gray primer/paint. I have used this paint in my kitchen and daughter's room and loved it.
I took out all the innards beforehand.
It sat for most of the year and then I started working on it again.
I didn't know what I wanted to do with it.
I decided to add some molds to the front.
They are made from paper clay.
This is where I got mine from Jamirayvintage.
Click on IOD and I think it is the Lock & Key mold and there is another one I used but do not remember the name.
I painted them white before I added them to the clock. Just let them dry for a bit before you glue them on.
I added a transfer to the inside middle of the clock, also from IOD.
Then I painted the rim of the doors, top and bottom door, in Waterlilly by DIY paint. You can see some of it here and below.
I also painted the very top and whatever that middle piece on the top is called along with the spindle looking things white!
As you can see I put another transfer on the inside top where the numbers go!
I also painted the pendulum because I did not like the brown and gold.
However this seems to add a problem of it working, so I need to figure that part out.
Last but not least, I stenciled some designs from Jami Ray Vintage onto the sides of the clock.
I love how it turned out, do you?
Tell me in the comments what you have been catching up on!!
Thank you for stopping by!
