Remember my sunburst/starburst mirror project here? My vintage sunburst clock-turned-mirror just came back from the framer and it's really better than I expected. I like it so much more than the 'new-but-made-to-look-old' sunburst I hung over the other screen.
The one on the right, the one just back, has much more of a detailed, classic look. It looks older, and of course, I'm all about that.
So, now, I guess I gotta replace the other one!
If you want to do something similar: do not reinvent the wheel like I did. O, how I wish I had seen this post from the fantastic blog An Aesthete's Lament before I started my project. This smart cookie kept the clock intact and just silver-leafed the inside of the glass cover of the clock! It is exactly the same clock/mirror as mine and it looks just as fabulous, maybe even more so.
