Cuckoo Clock Makeover

A while back I found this little plastic cuckoo clock at an estate sale. I've been meaning to paint it since then and today I finally got around to it. My current favorite color is yellow so I decided to go with that.  I love how it turned out!

I put some tape over the little bird and my dad had the idea of covering the circular clock part with a spray can lid. It fit perfectly!

Now... time to find some open wall space.


  1. That is awesome! And now I am on a quest to find a clock like that.

    1. Thank you! It's just a little cheap plastic one. I don't think I could bring myself to paint a nice one!

  2. That turned out so cute! I love the yellow :)

  3. I honestly adore this. It turned out great! I have a little vintage glass cuckoo clock on the wall in my kitchen and I am slightly obsessed with it!

    If you're interested, I would love to see it (or one of your other cute projects) submitted in our DIY contest. ;)

  4. Elizabeth - this is awesome! I'd love to feature it in my spray paint round-up for next Friday. Let me know what you think!
