Hi guys! I have been a little MIA due to the impending re-branding of my business. Only a week and a half to go!
A couple of weekends ago I got a huge energy burst and ended up doing a few quickie craft projects. One of them was the chalkboard wine glasses. Another was spray painting a clock to go into my office. It started out like this-
I've had this clock for well over eight years now, and I haven't used it in probably about five or six years since I never replaced the battery. I figured a little spray paint in the soon to be colors of my office wouldn't hurt.
A few coats of gold spray paint and clear gloss spray paint later and it turned into this-
After it dried I studied it for a while. I asked Simon what he thought of it. He said that he didn't like the form of the clock in the first place (how does that saying go? Putting lipstick on a pig?). I thought about spraying it a different color, but in the end I trashed it. Something just didn't feel or look right about it. Oh well! All of our crafty/DIY projects don't always come out looking great. Have you worked on something lately that you had high hopes for and it turned into a flop?
