Embracing friendship even though oceans lay between us!
This post is dedicated to my Muse, Angie Chevaz of knickoftimeinteriors and her love of old clocks. She is truely a goddess of inspiration. A wonderful person with a giving heart!
This was a fleamarket find! I love the cut outs and the shape but not the brown colour, the green felt and the shiny , brassy coloured handles. Hubby removed the felt with a chisel.
I mixed 2 shades of aqua colour to get this duck egg blue shade. I added some calsium carbonate powder for a chalky finish. I gave the tray a few layers of colour, then hand sanded along the edges and around the cut outs.
Next, I cut out the shapes of the openings from the same dictionary pages I used for my Junkman table and glued the shapes into the openings using my Amos glue (similar to Elma's).
Then I added a few layers of podge. I then went over to knickoftimeinteriors and downloaded the antique clock graphics.
I was doing my happy dance when I found a square shaped clock graphic as well as the round ones!
I cut out the graphics and laid them over the dictionary cut outs using podge.
I cut narrow strips of the dictionary page and podged each strip over the handles making sure I was getting it securely fixed to the underside of each handle.
For depth, I rubbed in my Dala Antique Rub in umber and then hand sanded all over with 400 grit water paper for some variation and texture. Finally I sealed it with a clear coat to protect its new look! I love it....I might add some glass inserts!!!
I am linking up to the 31st Knick of Time Tuesday Link Party.
