So first thing I did (after cleaning it off) was to take out the "face", which ended up being just a metal piece with numbers written on it. I also threw away the grotty plastic case thing that was all yellowed and dirty. Then I went ahead and painted my clock.
Now comes the exciting part -- I couldn't quite decide how I wanted to redo the face of my clock -- but I knew I couldn't just leave it as a gold, shiny thing. I scoured the web and searched high and low for an image I felt I could use on my clock. Then I came across this vintage label at Karen's blog, The Graphics Fairy. And let me tell you -- this blog is amazing! You'll be there for a while -- believe me!
Perfect -- yellow, round and adorable! I HAD to use it! I did use an image editing program to lighten the image and add some numbers to it.
I Mod Podged it on the back of the original clock face -- so there was a little bit of silver peaking out. Once it was dried, I placed it in the clock and reattached the hands.
I love how it turned out! I'm thinking it might look cute with some distressing. What do you think? Either way, you can't beat a cute clock for $3.99!
