I'ma gal who almost always knows exactly what she wants or what she is gonna do next. Rarely do I second guess a decision or have to think about a choice...I just know what I want or like and embrace it. However, every once in a while (must be the full moon from yesterday that has me in a color choice quandry) I need a little insight from creative folks. I need your opinion with a color makeover for a faboosh vintage sunburst wall clock that I found. It runs beautifully, but has a good bit of metallic detoriation on the metal spokes.
Once this happens, you really must steel wool it away and put a primer/paint on it to stop the continued rust and decay. Normally I paint these either diner pink or diner aqua...but I came across a couple of spray paint cans in this glorious light, lime green that I am jonesing to use. So here is where I need your help...should I use the really cool lime green or stick to the diner pink or aqua?
Lime green which would be perfect for a sunny yellow room or retro den, would look great against the black clock face...and, and, and you rarely see this color used...which is another reason why I am leaning towards the lime green.
Diner pink...a color you can never miss with.
Diner aqua...another color you can't miss with.
So there, can you not see my color quandry? So please leave your color choice as a comment and help this sea witch figure out which color to use. I will post the repainted photo next week.
Now, as long as we are talking color, how great are these spring petunias? I am crazy about this magenta. (you probably recognize that I moved the petunias to put the clock up and snap a photo of it for today's post.)
Petunias are back on the stacking benches at my entrance where they belong. Have a glorious day everyone. Sea Witch
