Doesn't Everyone Have A Red Cuckoo Clock?

I'm sure that everyone in their right mind has a bright, red cuckoo clock, don't they?

Several weeks ago, I got this little wooden cuckoo clock at the Flea Market and was just enthralled by it.  It doesn't work. (I wanted everyone to know that before I got fussed at for painting it.)

I covered the dial with masking tape to retain the numbers on the dial.  Then, I spray painted it with a white primer.

I let it dry good and then sprayed it Cherry Red.  I really do think it will be cute in an arrangement of other red items. I think I will try to find some kind of small chain the attach to the bottom.  I assume it had one at some time.

Also, will put new hands on the dial.  (Just noticed that!)

Anyway, enjoy!

Till next time, Judy
