I've been changing up the look in my dining room these past few months and have especially loved redoing the top of my armoire. I really think of it as a mantle, it has such a nice big top to decorate.
As it was coming together I was missing one item to be the centerpiece of the space. I was wishing I had the perfect clock for the spot when I remembered I did have a clock, but not the RIGHT clock.
This clock was a left over from my former life doing home parties. I always loved it but it had broken second hand and had been up in the closet for years. I decided to make it over for my new look.
Not such a bad little clock, you might say. But the brown wood and aged yellow face was not working for me. I popped off the glass face and removed the hands. Never needed the that broken second hand anyway!
I then made this face in MS DIP. The 'Broderick Clockworks' is a nod to my hometown of Broderick, California and the Roman numerals MMXI are for 2011.
I printed the face out and then spray painted the clock black and added a little silver glazing on the legs, top finial and embossing on the front. After reassembeling I have this new beauty for my armoire.
So happy with the results! Thanks so much for stopping by. I would so love to hear your comments and would love to have you as a follower. See you at the fun parties below~don't miss the fun!
