Mini Makeover Part 1 & . . .

We are moving in a few months, but I can't stand that my baby's room is an office with a crib in it. So I am doing a mini-makeover, complete with a little wall art, a mod podge shelf and re-doing an old clock.

I think I got this clock from my mom. Sorry momma, hope it wasn't a treasure of some sort.

It's oak around the outside with a gold rim. I know, it screams baby.

PS I know babies can't tell time, but I actually use this a lot, it's the perfect line of sight in my hallway.
And... I actually kinda love it. I took it all apart and painted the outside and the rim. Then I mod podged a simple car in the middle, which is going to match my artwork.

Part two coming in a few days!

Super cute. You made a regular old ugly clock (sorry mom) cute! Way to think outside of the box. I think I would have just given it to DI. Can't wait to see the rest of the makeover!
