Whatever Wednesday: Roadside Find; large metal clock
Right on the mantle of our new home.
While I really liked the way it looked before, I wanted some of the dark teal and oil rubbed bronze that bedecks the rest of the house.
So I spray painted it dark teal.
Then added oil-rubbed bronze on top.
Sanded the oil-rubbed bronze off in some spots, which brought out some of the dark teal and some of the previous gold/mustard color.
Then added dark teal clock hands for additional color (and so we could actually see the clock hands against the bronze).
Originally I was kicking myself for spray painting this piece because it was very well done and had dimension to it, but this is growing on me. And...it matches everything else in the house.
