Goodwill Cherub Clock Makeover

I picked up this little clock a couple of weeks ago.  I need to re-check my posts because I can't remember if it was from Goodwill or a garage sale.  Anywho, I gave it a white spray paint makeover:
The red you see on the cheeks is actually lipstick.  Yes, lipstick.  I wanted to make the cheeks pop.  It got a little messy and I'm still mulling over whether I like it or not.  Argh!
And double-argh because Michael's did not have any clock pieces to replace the ones that are missing.  They were either too small, too big or just too out of place.  So for now it sits semi-naked in my tea room.

I think it's clever to use lipstick for the cheeks. Very resourceful of you! It's a great find and I like it painted white.

What a great idea to use the lipstick! I never would have thought of that. :) It is very cute and when you it done it will be lovely. :)
