Operation Red Clock!

There are some design elements in your home that everyone seems to love. Guests often comment on them and even ask where they came from! Family members look at them as an important part of the home that should never change. It is very nice to have a feature of your design thought of so highly. On the other hand, if you write a Blog that focuses on refinishing, refurbishing and changing your home décor often, it can be a problem! The item that is currently on my radar is a large red wall clock I purchased at Pier One years ago. As I stated before everyone loves this clock. But I want to paint it! It will be perfect for my new office, but the red just will not work. How did I solve this dilemma? With a stealth makeover (Operation Red Clock)! I am an early riser and have been known to move furniture or paint an entire room while everyone is sleeping. Operation Red Clock took place at six in the morning while drinking my coffee. I have to admit, I felt a little guilty, but as soon as I started to paint, I knew it was the right choice. I am sure some people will mourn the loss of the red clock, but change can be good and this clock looks damn good!

This is the red clock! Beloved by all!

Here goes nothing!

I wanted a creamy color so I mixed Annie Sloan Old white and Country Grey Chalk Paint.

I just need to add wax and distress it!

I think it looks great! I can not wait to see it in my office!
