My husband and I bought this clock brand new, it was one of the first pieces we bought together.  I remember being so excited to bring it home, I have loved it ever since!  
When we bought it 8 years ago I really liked black furniture, but I was ready for something lighter.

I love how the white pops against my walls.  It really lightens up our landing.  I painted this clock with DecoArts Chalky Finish white paint. This is a great paint to use over the top of something that has been lacquered.  I have painted several pieces of furniture that were previously lacquered with latex and other specialty paints and so far this paint has help up the very best.  I lightly sanded this clock and wiped it down really good before I painted it.  Since I was going from black to white I applied about 4 coats to get really good coverage.   

I then lightly distressed the details to let the black show through, and I sealed it with a water based poly urethane as I know sticky hands will be all over it.  

  This clock is a Howard Miller, it isn’t anything too fancy, the clock is powered by batteries, but I love all of the details and those cute little feet.
