It Has Become A Work in Progress

clock in sun room 010

One of my new stencils arrived today.  I have lots of plans for this stencil but adding it to my clock was not one of them when I ordered it.

I finished making this clock just a little over a week ago.  For a tutorial on how I did it you can click here:  Vintage Clock Tutorial

What do you think???

Here is before…

And here it is after.  I think I like it.  I think it was a little too plain before don’t you?

Now while I am at it……I guess I’ll start shopping for a clock kit to make it tick!

I’ll be sure to post when I get that done as well. Is anything ever really finished?

I love it on your clock, Lisa! I think it looks great! You know those decorative clocks Ballard Designs has are over $200.00 and some of them have french wording. I think it adds a nice touch.

Oh yes, I am loving the stencil. Just adds a bit of fanciness (is that a word?)

Anything written in French has my heart.

I'd like to know where the stencil comes from too. And what does it say? Love your blog!

The stencil came from www.maisondestencils.com and "Boulangerie" is the word for "Bakery"
"Bon Pain" means "good bread" and the rest is the address. That stencil was #35.00 and comes on a nice clear piece of myler plastic.

Just found your blog and became a follower. Adding the stencil detail to your clock is the perfect touch. Blessings...
