It's not for everybody and it probably doesn't look like the hall clock in your grandmother's house.
This is a clock I painted a couple of years ago for our get away home in Galena, Illinois.
I ran across these images on my laptop and thought it would be fun to share them.
I found the clock at a freight salvage store for $99.00
I liked the lines of the clock but it had been painted in a floral victorian motif that really isn't my style.
At that price, though, I thought it was worth bringing home and turning into a conversation piece for our home.
I wasn't confident with my free hand lettering yet so at this point I was still using rub on letters. I put this quote along the top that reads Make Time in Galena to Celebrate.
This phrase seemed appropriate since this is where our family likes to come to celebrate the holidays, birthdays and even a wedding.
I embellished the sides by painting elements that seemed to reflect the Galena Territories and the beautiful countryside in this area.
I use painter's tape to help create the stripes.
I was pleased with how it turned out
and for less than $100 I have a whimsical unique piece to greet us and our guests every time we visit.
I hope you will be able to join me Sunday for my very first linky party here at BeColorful.
It is Motivated Monday
I'm hoping you will link a project you are thinking about doing, something you have started or something you completed and want to share with the rest of us.
I have the grab button in my sidebar.
Please feel free to take it with you.
Hope to see you Sunday if not before.
In the mean time I will be linking up here:Attic Mag and these fun parties too.
