so i got this clock because i had seen one the previous day that didn't work and was ten dollars  and this was five but i'm not crazy about the colors, dont let the picture fool you, i'm not sure what to use to paint it, its plastic. and those things on the bottom move, any ideas???

photobucket wont let the picture stay flipped
and i havent the patience to fix it.

and i got a whole bunch of these old paperbacks that are too awesome for words

and my personal favorite

i dont want to have to alter the covers at all, any ideas???

also i found this on the streets of Israel, i guess its some sort of 2 in 1 creepy purim face thing. i think i'll just stencil it onto everything i can but i wanted to show it here in its awesomeness.
Huh Huh

Two words: Spray paint!!!! Plastic takes spray paint quite well. You would have to tape off the clock face. It would look really good in black. My mom often takes that tacky gold plastic shelves and mirrors frames from the seventies and spray paints them to sell in her store. You'd be amazed what a coat of spray paint will do!

OMG--I just have to say that I HAD that book, "I Saw Him First" when I was in junior high!!! And I remember thinking the boy in the picture on the cover was so hot! (Cough, cough.)  Tee hee, what a blast from the past!

I agree with the first reply! Spray paint is the answer. I am a spray painting fool. It will make it look lovely.

And for the books you could always take the pages out and put notebook paper in it. Make a cute journal.

kleinsch--- hopefully your name isn't adele j. because thats the name on that inside and that would be way to weird. I think the spray painting is the way to go with the clock. I have some wild dream of turning it into a lamp but i haven't quite figured it out yet.

Tee hee, no my name is not Adele J.  ;-) 

I also purchased a clock similar to the one you have--it was a gift for my step daughter when she was about 7 or 8, and really wanted a Beauty and the Beast clock.  (It makes hideous fake chiming sounds on the quarter hour, but fortunately you can turn that feature off.)  Maybe gussy up the bottom with ribbon or fabric?  (To hide the plastic-ness of it all?). Do some glass etching on the glass part? (That would be cool with some neat stencils.)
