old fashioned clock…

I really like the look of this style of clock, but, didn’t want to spend a lot of money for an antique.  this clock had a shiny gold finish, which I didn’t like, but, for $9.99, I bought it here

first, I spray painted in pink, then, I simply rubbed a brown ink over it, to tone it down, and a black ink pad on the edges, to give it a chippy, aged finish.  (the inks I used to the pads used for stamps)

menards also had a tiny clock, ($7.96), which I plan on painting white.
