I love a great find, don't you.
This time I really Scored!
I was waiting for the DMV to open
and had some time to kill, so why not wander the isles of Hobby Lobby right?
I walked down the clearance isle and found this beautiful
I walked past it a few times, falling more and more in love with it.
So I called my hubs and asked if I could spend $5 on a clock.
He goes, "yeah, I guess so.
You know you don't really need to
ask to spend $5."
I know but this was such a great find, I had to share immediately.
So I took it up to the cashier and she was stunned at the price.
"You sure got a great deal on this clock!" Yes. Yes I did!
I really did only spend $5
Why was it marked down to $5 you ask?
Well, it looked like someone ran over it with a cart or something metal.
My hubs didn't think I could fix it. He was pleasantly surprised.
Next I got out some vaseline and a cotton ball. I've seen this technique on Pinterest and was dying to try it out.
Using the cotton ball, I rubbed some vaseline on some places randomly around the clock. Then taped off the face with painters tape and gave it 2 coats of black flat spray paint. Let the paint dry and using a piece of sand paper, rub off the paint where the vaseline is.
Here's a close up of where the vaseline was. The origional brown shows through perfectly. Love it.
