I picked up this mantle clock for free at a garage sale probably 2 seasons back. I really did want to try to fix it (have my hubby fix it). After looking at it recently, I figured out it had a missing piece or two so I decided to do something with it.
It looked something like this with out the clock face on it. I thought I took a photo but can't find it. Guess it's time to organize those pictures.
I painted it in Annie Sloan old white.
I had an old vintage trivet similar to this that I popped the ceramic center out of and used to decorate my piece.
I added a few other pieces, painted them and voila!
A nice shabby chic piece.
Here is the back. Easy access to add some cute birds nest and a bird.
I thought It might even be able to be suction cupped to a window to see if real birds would make their home there.
