It's About "Time!"

Hi again!  Remember this clock I purchased at Goodwill SEVERAL months ago?  Well, I finally finished it and have it hanging in our new master bathroom.  I had to do some minor mechanical work... change out the gears, add new black hands (I originally had gold ones, but could never make out the time).

I spray painted it with Rustoleum's Heirloom White...

After about 3-4 coats and waiting overnight for it to dry, I decided to lightly apply Ralph Lauren's Smoke Glaze to make the details stand out.  
Yes, it's almost one in the morning!  What can I say, I'm a night owl!
We (I) desperately needed a clock in the bathroom to help me stay on time in the mornings.  I love it!  For just $2.99 and $5 for new gears, I turned this:
