Clock ReVamp

Sometimes I have a problem with over decorating an area...Are you an over decorator? under decorator? or a non-decorator?  I decided that the area above my pantry needed a really fabulous clock (the blank area was bothering me).  I didn't want a boring one, but at the same time I didn't want to over-do it.  I was drooling over this one from world market. (P.S. it is only $50)



Sadly, the clock was WAY to big for the area. My search continued...  I really liked the idea of a square clock that looked exactly like that one {but we both know what happens when we you know exactly what you want...}  I finally got the idea that I could find a clock and revamp it a little.  This is what the clock looked like before:


It needed some love, and dusting.  I didn't like the color or really anything else about it, except the shape.  I decided I was going to paint it...black...I know boring.  Black is my go to color.  I need to work on that.  I covered the front with paper and tape.


I just used black chalk board paint, and did about 3 coats.  


When I took of the tape/paper I realized I didn't hate the inside of the clock.  I actually kind of loved the look...I guess it was the brassy color of the frame I hated.  


Here are some more kitchen decorating ideas if you are looking for some!  I am always looking for new ideas...I can't leave one room alone for long.  :)



I love Pioneer Woman's cook book....



Ya'll have a great week!!!
