    1. Omg Marty, I didn’t know if you remembered who I was, let alone read my blog, but since you’re here, can I please take a moment to send out virtual hugs to you because I heard what happened and my heart goes out to you! ❤️ How lovely of you to be so kind with your comments, as well. Thank you so much!

  2. I have the same clock and have been thinking about painting it! Thanks for the inspiration. It looks beautiful. A while back, I saw the same clock painted a uniform white, and that looked good, too. It’s nice to have options!

  5. Love the clock re-do!

  13. Absolutely love that clock!


    I like reading your blog. I learn so much.

  15. Love the clock. My great-grandfather immigrated from Sweden. Maybe that’s why I’m always drawn to Mora clocks!

  16. Terri Herman says:

    Now that looks lovely! It’s nice making something your own. I have an old dresser that needs a little something. This may be it. Thanks!

  17. I have also finished many pieces of furniture and I already have something in mind for my next project, thank you so much for sharing!

  18. Very pretty. I have always wanted an antique grandfather clock.

  19. D. Ingram says:

    Beautiful job on the clock! I must confess I have not seen this style of clock before. I am now pondering just where a clock that it might work in my home.
    Really love all that you shared about the process of completing the project. I could relate in several areas.

    Now to find space for the clock!

    The modification of the Mora clock turned out beautifully! I like it much more than the original! Thanks for sharing your artistic endeavor!

  26. I love it!! Now I have my heart set on finding one of these… in a price that won’t break my budget. Love the new look you created with paint. Thanks for sharing!!

  27. Chalk paint gives such a great texture to things. Love this clock and the color of antique white shades gives it a rich quality. Fabulous!

  28. Love the clock – painting is great, too! We have a weakness for clocks, especially chiming ones.
