Clock Makeover

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!
