It’s been awhile since we did a Trash to Treasure makeover around here. Since there are four of us (KariAnne, Jamie, Jenna and I) that do Trash to Treasure, one scheduling conflict or another makes this the first T2T this year!
Sooo, I had my project ready to go for February, but like I mentioned schedules just wouldn’t cooperate. Which means you may have already seen it, just because I couldn’t get around including it in a few posts over the last month.
See that clock?
It used to look like this:
It was given to us by a friend, who had it given to them. I’m pretty sure no-one knew what to do with it. It looks a little like a Roman shield, or something.
I decided paint might help!
- metal clock
1. Place clock on cardboard and paint.
2. There is no step two! It’s that easy.
The paint color I used is the same as the hutch I painted (Grey Tweed) before Christmas, lightened (for interest) with a little white craft paint. Yes, craft paint!
Now it fits in with the rest of the taupe grey in our cottage farmhouse style dining room!
Tip: Look at the shape of something and not the color. Paint can fix a multitude of uglies!
See what you can make from someone else’s discarded “trash”?! Speaking of which, go see what my bloggy girls made this month:
