In Minnesota recently, my brother-in-law bestowed an amazing gift upon me that will be the perfect addition to the haunted parlor. When I showed it to his Lordship, however, I received a rather snide comment about the clock laying downstairs awaiting a make over. Nothing like a little husband distain to spur me to action. So last week I actually worked on the clock. It is not finished yet but I have made some good progress. First, it received a couple of coats of chalk paint followed by distressing and waxing. Then I added some embellishments I had purchased on Etsy from the Wood Shape Store. I purchased a clock kit from Michaels so that it would keep time. As a working clock, his Lordship said he would happily welcome it into his study. That is great because storage space is at a premium around here. I have plans to add a dropping spider (instead of a pendulum) and lights to the interior of the cabinet. Here are some pictures.
