Thrift Store Clock to Mirror Transformation

Found this little goodie at the thrift store last week.  I did like the clock however I didn't need a clock, I wanted a mirror so I removed the clock and put in a mirror.  I didn't even clean it up, I sort of like it's chippy tarnished-ness.  I may however give her a sparkly new coat of paint some day but just not today.  My living room (you know the room nobody really sits in?) is sort of lacking and this perks it up just a bit.

The best part?
$3.00 for the clock
$ .99 for the mirror

  6. sadly no, the clock went in the garbage. For a few days after I bought it it sat on my kitchen desk and it ticked so loudly I thought I might go insane.
