Quick and easy vintage wall clock makeover
After two summers of no yard saling, John and I went to a town yard sale a couple of weekends ago. It was so much fun to be out and about on a beautiful sunny day, and while I didn’t find a lot… I did find a fabulous vintage wall clock for just one dollar.
These vintage/retro wall clocks comes in all shapes, sizes, and designs.
I don’t see these clocks often, but when I do I can’t resist them… especially when they have curliques, and when they’re a steal of a deal.
Of course, if you love the gold… keep it, but I’m a color loving gal… and these clocks take spray paint like a dream. Like this other clock makeover that I did a while back.
Here you can see the hollow back, so I’m assuming these plastic resin clocks were created using molds.
This clock is dated 1972…
and was made by Burwood Prod. They made a lot of clocks back in the day, not just resin but others too. According to my research the company ceased production back in the 1990s.
Removing clockworks before spray painting
This clock must have been in someone’s basement, attic, or garage because it was pretty dirty. After giving it a good wipe down with a damp cloth, I removed the clock works and face. The face is made of metal and wasn’t glued down.
Parts of a clockworks
If you’ve never taken a clockworks apart, here’s what it looks like. Clocks are things that I see at thrift stores all the time, and if a clockworks that comes with a clock doesn’t work property it can be easily replaced.
After I spray painted my vintage clock I put the clockworks back in place. Here’s a close up so you can see. The last piece to go in is the second hand, which slips right in the hole at the top.
Vintage wall clock makeover
And here’s my vintage wall clock makeover after two coats of a beautiful bright and happy apple red.
Here’s the original gold clock before its makeover hanging on the wall between the front kitchen door and the basement door.
And here it is in all it’s happy glory.
This has got to be one of the quickest and easiest makeovers ever, thanks to a bold color change and the magic of spray paint. It goes perfectly in my aqua and red kitchen.
