Here’s what it has looked like for years in my breakfast room.
I bought it at Ballard Designs a long time ago, and the finish was black with some gold accents. Like many bloggers, I am loving a more white palette now, so I have been painting things like crazy. It’s no surprise that this clock did not avoid my paint brush. It was one of many victims lately. I painted it with my homemade chalky paint.
It’s the same shade as ASCP Old White, but it is homemade chalky paint. For the homemade chalky paint recipe I use and recommend, click here. After the paint dried, I gave it a coat of Fidde’s antique brown wax.
It took me a few minutes of my time, and a small amount of paint and wax; I don’t know when I have been this pleased with such a small investment of my time and $. I love it when we can refresh something we already own at a small expense.
