Angie from The Painted Piano gave this clock an antique makeover with Vanilla Frosting and antiquing wax in just one afternoon!

Hi there! Summer is in full swing which means I’m squeezing projects in between pool days and softball games and water fights! So this clock was a great project to do in an afternoon.

This clock was given to a client of mine, but it didn’t match their decor at all. A little paint to the rescue!

After taking apart what I could, and taping off the glass and delicate areas, I started with a coat of Vanilla Frosting over the entire piece. I didn’t do anything to prep the wood! That’s one of the perks of Country Chic paint!

As with most projects, the first coat sometimes looks a little sketchy. But keep going! That second coat will make it look much better.

After the paint dried, I distressed the edges to accentuate the beautiful details and lines of the clock.

Finally, I applied Antiquing Wax to the entire piece. I used the small waxing brush to make sure the wax got into every crevice and corner, and then simply wiped it off using a lint-free cloth.

Here’s a picture of a detail with no wax, the wax applied, and the wax wiped off:
