Painting a vintage clock

My husband and I have an appreciation for clocks.  When I ran across this one, I wasn't sure we could get it to work.  After tinkering with it, my husband fixed it.  Hooray!

Such pretty lines!  If I couldn't get the clock to function, it was going to be gutted and turned into a shadow box.  I am glad it works, though.
After some diy chalk paint, distressing and waxing, this is what I got.

I am very happy with the result!  Now, it's your turn!  Go paint a clock or find a new purpose for an old broken one.  I would love to see what you come up with.
