One of the project I've been working on at home is trying to get my kitchen counter arrangements coordinated. They're mostly minor projects, but I'm beginning to realize with a full time job my time is extremely limited, and with the time change I can barely keep my eyes open when I get home.
Here's a clock I had on my counter. It was given to me by a friend several years ago. It was originally in my Study, but when we started experiencing a number of power shortages I became irritable having to reset my microwave clock 2-3 times weekly so I moved it from my Study into the kitchen.
While I know it isn't a kitchen clock, it's battery operated and I no longer have to worry about setting the time, but it's out of touch with my kitchen decor.
So after some thought I decided to paint it.
I used chalk paint (homemade) for the base coat.
Then I went over it with a gray blue paint...
While this was okay, the white was a bit too "clean" for me and the gray blue needed to be played down, so I decided to dirty it up with ocher.
Here's a close up
My kitchen clock all dirty-up!
Sometimes it's okay to dirty things up when you LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!
