A Quick Clock Redo


Life has been a little different for me lately and I've missed being able to remake and redo anything except my bed!

Sooo, I purchased an outdoor clock off of Joss & Main the other day with credits that I had there so it only cost me a few $.
I liked it (especially for the price) but it was a little to blah for me.

So I got out my paintbrushes. Actually the first thing I did was rub a little stain on it. I then dry brushed some black and gray acrylics on. It still wasn't quite right so I dug around and found a container of metallic glaze that the people at DecoArt had sent me for a try.
It gave it the perfect coppery look.
I love it now!
Plus, when I'm laying here watching the boys swim, then I can glance right up and see my time and temp.

Perfect.
