I love clocks. The bigger, the better. About a year ago I found a large wall clock on sale (half price) at The Little Traveler. The finish was a little too dark for my taste so I lightened it up with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
This is what the clock looks like today.
This is what it looked like when I brought it home from The Little Traveler.
Nothing wrong with the color … I simply decided I wanted a lighter shade.
I’m going for a softer palette in the family room, so I think the lighter finish fits better.
I brought in another bamboo floor mat for this room.
They wear extremely well, which is great if you have pets or small children.
But I digress …
Back to the clock. I brushed on a coat of Paris Gray Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
After it dried I used a dry brush and applied Old White (also ASCP).
Once the paint dried, I applied clear wax all over.
I followed up with touches of dark wax for a more distressed look.
The entire process took less than 3 hours, and that includes drying time.
See that cabinet in the corner? That’s my next ASCP makeover.
I’ll be using Pure White and adding some appliques.
I hope to get it done this weekend. Time will tell!
