A quick spray painting project


I picked up this little clock last year at a yard sale for 50 cents.  I like old clocks.  Even though this was fairly new looking, I could see that it could have the potential to look a little older and more fun with a coat of spray paint.  It has been sitting in my basement for months.  I don't know why I didn't do this earlier, but I brought it up, and spray painted it with a couple of coats of Krylon's Catalina Mist in Satin.  I love how it turned out, and I plan to put it upstairs on my bookshelf with my real, vintage clocks.  Isn't it amazing what a coat of paint can do to transform something?



  1. I love the color! I'm going to have to get me a can of that color- seeing on something makes me realize it would be the perfect accent color for my front room. Thanks!

  2. I love the color too Robyn! I'm not sure I would have picked it out by myself. . .it is amazing what putting it onto something will do for your mind!!!

  3. Great post...Going to keep my eye out for a clock like that...

  4. I love it! I've been wanting to find a handsome looking clock (I used to have one but left in Japan...) for a long time. Thanks for the idea!

  5. I love it! I'm going to be trolling the thrift shops & yard sales for a clock so that I can do this too.
