The day time stood still...

I seem to be on a clock kick lately, so I was way excited to find 2 wooden clocks at my FAV dollar store! Problem is...they looked like this:


HOLY UGLINESS! It needed paint, PRONTO! So, I gave it a nice coat of Valspar Antique Blue. And the hands got a nice coat of Heirloom White. But, it was still too plain...I needed embellishments! Then it hit me! Check out these cute little tea light holders I found (yes, at the same dollar store).


So, I took a tin snips to their little legs and cut them off the base. But...I wasn't digging the color...so, they got a good coat of London Grey. Then I liquid nailed them to the clock. I used some of the silver contact paper that I cut with my cricut to mark the 12, 3, 6, and 9, and look at my $3 clock!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
