A Quick Before And After

This is the clock from the scale house where I work. I did not want to look at it for even One. More. Day.
Behold what a little white spray paint and some black vinyl can do! 
I don't have the mechanism in it yet, but I wanted to show you guys.
This I can look at!
I got the vinyl a few months ago from the discount bin at TJMaxx for $4 (I used less than 1/3 of the design), and I already had the paint. 

I wish I could paint the whole scale house. It's ugly.

Thanks for reading!

You make me laugh Suzanne!!! How many times do we just put up with things FOREVER! I had this ugly lamp for ages and ages before I finally replaced it. I didn't know how much I really hated it until it was gone!
I loved your Royal pain post. You typewriter looks so spiffy now!

Hasn't this weather been glorious? Perfect temps here! My neighbor's hay did get rained on though and I have been hoping for him that he can finally get it baled before the rain comes again

Darn it...I forgot to say how darling the clock is now. That should make it easier to look at. So cute!
