I had to share this photo of the grandfather clock with no guts that I recently thrifted. I paid $40 for it and plan to turn it into a display shelf for some collected (or created) artwork.
At first I thought I would “art it up” and get all crazy with color but the more I think about it the more I think I might just paint it and give it a light bit of aging. My reasoning is that if I art it up too much it will detract from the art I want to display IN it.
By the way, I do have the finial that goes in the top center. I just have to glue it back on.
What do you think?
This will be a project that I work on a little here and there this winter as I have time. I’ll update you as I go along.
