Vintage Bathroom Clock
In my last post found here, I shared a couple of signs I made for our bathroom update by personalizing some images from The Graphics Fairy.
With that same thought, I also upcycled a clock using another of Graphics Fairy's personal care vintage labels.
I purchased this clock for $1 at a garage sale. I liked its smaller size, but the flowers just were not working anywhere in our house.
After looking through Graphics Fairy's round labels, I decided the script on this would make the cutest clock.
To make it look more like I clock, I married the design with this clock face also found on GF. I'll do a tutorial soon and show you how I did this.
Next, I printed my updated image onto off-white scrapbook paper. I was going to mod podge it, but my printer is an ink-jet and the ink smeared on my sample. Instead, I sprayed several layers of this Krylon Matte Clear to the front and back of the image. Later when it was dry, I cut the clock face to fit the clock and decoupaged it in place. By the way, I first painted the clock white to ensure the colorful flowers would not bleed through.
That's all there was to it! It is the perfect size, and now the perfect look for our bathroom.
Thanks for stopping by the tub!
