From Drab to Fab: Wall Clock Transformation

I needed a clock for my cookie/craft room.  I could not find one that I liked, so I transformed an old one I had from our old house.

Isn't she a beauty?  NOT!  I am not sure why I ever purchased this clock, but it would not look good in my cookie/craft room, which is full of bright and fun colors.  So...I busted out some chalk paint and craft paper and transformed it from Drab to Fab!

It was a simple and easy transformation.  I took apart as much as I could, which was basically just removing the front cover and the glass.  I could not figure out how to remove the hands though.  My plan originally was to use a cute paper on the face of the clock, but when I could not remove the hands, I went to plan B, which was to just paint the face.  I chose a creamy ivory color for the face and a bright turquoise for  the outside cover.  For the numbers, I just cut out some puzzle pieces for the 12, 3, 6 and 9, bright pink looked great! I was originally going to paint the hands also, but the black hands worked well.

So there you go...an old Drab clock, a little paint and craft paper, and I have  Fab clock for my cookie/craft room
