Paint can work wonders in your home décor items. How about an inexpensive and colorful clock makeover. It’s a fun way to spruce up a room.

I am in the progress of redoing my craft room. The room has been painted in a Sherwin Williams, Aqua Duct. It is a beautiful aqua color. For this space, I want to use fun happy colors. My inspiration is this beautiful fabric that I found on Spoonflower called Peony Branch by Danika Herrick. It is a beautiful pattern of pink and orange on an aqua background. This fabric and wallpaper is available in various different colors.

Are these colors not fun?

I had a wall clock in my craft room that was originally black. Then I spray painted it a mint green two years ago. I want a colorful clock makeover.

And, I had just the color in mind!

The color on the color was a shiny light mint green. The color of the clock was boring on the aqua walls. It did not POP!

Let’s make over this clock. She’s going to be pretty in pink.

1. applying slick stick

Dixie Belle’s Slick Stick is a bonding agent that will help paint adhere to glass, ceramic, metal and slick surfaces. You can even paint PVC, laminate and other slippery surfaces.

You can use a sanding sponge to slightly sand any rough areas on the surface. Apply a second coat of the Chalk Mineral Paint.

After the second coat you should let the paint dry for a couple hours before applying the clear coat.

3. applying a sealer

To protect the paint, you can apply one to two coats of the Dixie Belle Clear Coat in Satin. They also have matte and gloss finishes available. It is a matter of personal preference.
