Ship Wheel Makeover  Ship Wheel Makeover

I snatched a hunter green ship wheel clock for 50 cents at a recent thrift store visit with plans to paint it for my beach themed summer mantel. The clock mechanism was broken so I took it out.

Then I set to painting it.   I found my inspiration in the Laguna Ship Wheel from One Kings Lane

I spray painted the entire wheel white first.  Then I brushed on varying shades of turquoise and aqua acrylic paint.  When it dried I distressed it with sandpaper and this is the result:  Ship Wheel Makeover
