What a difference paint can make.
My color palette for our home has evolved over time, and I've been slowly removing a lot of the red decor I've had around. I saw this fun clock on pinterest via my friend Melissa from the Sundance Catalog, and knew it would be a perfect way to make over a large wall clock I painted several years ago.

It was really in need of a makeover!
When we were painting the trim in Big Sister's room. I sanded the clock down and added a coat of white trim paint. It sat that way for a couple weeks.
Tuesday I finally had some time to finish the clock. It only took a couple hours.
I started by carefully measuring where I wanted the typography to go, then sketching things out in pencil.
Next, I carefully removed most of the vinyl, revealing the red finish underneath.
This took a while!
Once the vinyl was removed, I used craft acrylic paint, mixing orange with black, to paint all the lettering. When the kids came home from school, they wanted to help.
Once the lettering was finished, I mixed a little more orange and water to the remaining paint, and added some distressing.
Here is the final product, waiting for everything to dry.
I was so excited to add the clock works and hang the clock up!
I love that we have a fun new statement in our dining area.
Now just to decide what I want to hang on the other side of the clock...
