(I never successfully completed this process probably because there was wine involved!)
Anyway, I met her at the auction and it was pretty busy and we lost track of each other. To make a long story short, she left and I bought several items even though my intention was only to assist her with her purchases.
So then the challenge became how to sneak my purchases home without having my husband freak out over the addition of one more unfinished piece added to the line up waiting for my attention. It shouldn't be hard I mean after all, I only bid on a clock.
Oh did I mention it was a grandfather clock?
Ya, a little hard to hide!
I know many people would cringe at the thought of this (my mother) but I am considering painting this with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Does anyone have any thought or color suggestions for this? I would love to make it a real show piece that can be the focal point of a room but still classy looking.
I would love some opinions on this! Let me know your thoughts....
