I love to repurpose old items, especially when I can use them to recreate a designer look for much less! I used a thrift store clock and Chalky Finish paint to make an alarm clock that was inspired by this Anthropologie piece.
I find these old fashioned alarm clocks at thrift stores all the time, and they never cost more than $3. I
hoard collect them, because I love the retro styling and how easy these clocks are to alter. For this project, I only needed paint to create my Anthro inspired clock.
I used Chalky Finish Paint for this project because it is so easy to use! No priming or sanding needed. Just paint it! I also like that you can mix different colors to create the perfect finish for your project. DecoArt has a chart here that I like to refer to, and you can always mix your own colors, too.
