I used Americana’s Chalky Finish Paint for this project because it is so easy to use! No priming or sanding needed: just paint it! I like that you can mix different colors to create the perfect finish for your project. DecoArt has a chart here that I like to refer to, but you can always mix your own colors, to create the perfect hue. If you’re mixing your own, be sure to make more than you might need…sometimes it’s hard to recreate the exact same hue!
- Alarm clock from Goodwill
- Chalky Finish Paint (I used Everlasting and Treasure)
- Americana Varnish
Step two: Mix the paint to match the Anthroplogie clock. I mixed equal parts Everlasting and Treasure.
Step three: Paint the clock. To diminish brush marks, use a soft bristled brush, and wet it before adding paint. Once the first application is dry, add a second layer of paint.
I love my new alarm clock! I turned something old into something new with just a little paint. Why buy it when you can make your own? Have fun crafting and creating with thrifted finds from Goodwill San Antonio!
