Time for a change – clock makeover

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Apparently there was a time, (perhaps the 70s?), when a nice ornate clock/candlestick combo was very in vogue.  The first time I saw one of these at a yard sale, I thought it was unique.  But since then I have come across several more.  Quite the intriguing design statement.

I especially love the fact the candleholders are attached to the clocks with chains.
The first thing to go were the chains and candleholders.  I debated keeping these tired ladies as clocks, but decided they really were begging to be made into mirrors.  I cleaned them up, spray-painted them, and replaced the clock parts and clock face with mirrors.  Now these gaudy old clocks are fresh, lovely, and ready for 2011.

I will definitely keep my eyes peeled for more of these potential lovelies.  Now I just need to think of a great use for some vintage clock faces – any thoughts?

    Just found your blog through ModVintageLife and I’m so happy I did.

    Love how you transformed those ugly once was clocks to the beauty they should have been! I’ve found some old mirrors some ornate and created my own mirror wall also.

    Now following!
