Rummage Sale Clock Repurpose

April 22, 2017

My project today begins with a homemade wooden clock face that I purchased at a rummage sale for $1.

First I base coated the clock in black with Rust-Oleum American Accents 1/2 Pint Latex Satin in Canyon Black.  My top coat is my new favorite chalk paint Chiffon Cream by Rustoleum.  Chiffon Cream is not one of Rustoleum Chalked's  pre-mixed colors so you have it mixed at Menards or other source.
After two coats of Chiffon Cream, I lightly distressed the clock along the edges, grooves and center sections with 220 grit sandpaper.

I just received this Decoart Mandala Americana Decor Stencil 18x18  from Amazon.  I have a smaller one that I got from the Home Depot.  This larger size is perfect for a round table or in my case a new sign.
I used Delta Ceramcoat Acrylic Paint in Walnut Noyer for my stencil color.  I sealed my sign with several light coats of Krylon Satin Finish.   I may reapply during the summer months to keep my Mandala protected.

Here is the finished Mandala stenciled on the painted rummage sale clock face.  The Mandala sign replaces a white metal star that I have had hanging on the gate for a few years now.

This is the star from last year's garden tour.

I like the change.

Covered Patio Vignette
I shared this vignette with you recently with my cutting board hang tag.

I decided to try this twig swag above my vignette.  (bad iphone photo).  The swag didn't show up too well.

I sprayed the twig swag with Rust-Oleum Chalked Spray Paint Chiffon Cream

I think the swag looks so much better with the white paint.
