Another 2012 Project and the Booth Reveal

Another project for 2012 here at The Comforts of Home is this clock in the picture below.

I want to make it look more like an old Swedish Mora clock, so I plan on painting it similar to the one in the picture below
I love the old chippy grey look of it.

On To The Booth Reveal...

So, I spent the last week setting the booth up at Needful Things Antique Mall in Hendersonville, NC.  Mr. Comforts of Home built some  corner walls and hung some rods, so that I  could hang drop cloth curtains to define my space.

Some of you are familiar with my other blog, Flea Market Makeovers, that I started last May.  The reason I started that blog was to show tutorials and makeovers of flea market finds.  I planned on opening up a booth to sell my repurposed "finds".

If you want to see how the booth looks, head on over to Flea Market Makeovers, just click HERE.
Welcome Home,


  1. you'll make your clock look even better than the sample pic, I have not a doubt about that..

    wishing your the greatest luck with your booth.

  2. The clock will look wonderful made over like your inspiration picture! Can't wait to see it!

    Your booth looks terrific! Best of luck!

  3. Hi Penny,
    Oh how I love a white washed clock. My sister and I have been looking at Swedish Mora Clocks, funny you would post about it. I can't wait to see how your clock comes out. Perfect I bet. I went over to see your booth and it looks wonderful. I wish I lived new NC I would be over to shop. Best of luck! and Happy New Year to you and your family.
    Big hugs, Elizabeth

  4. Can't wait to see what you do with the clock! I love the inspiration piece!

  5. The clock is going to be beautiful in that shade! I can't wait to see it! I just saw your booth and I love it!! I know you will do well!


  6. I need to know your secret for getting Mr. C to let you paint all the furniture. I mentioned painting the wood bookcase in the living room yesterday and I thought I would have to get the smelling salts out for Earl. It isn't that I don't love wood...I just love painted wood more;>)
    And yes,I think the the clock would look fabulous painted like that!

  7. Oh my gosh Penny that is one makeover I cannot wait to see!!

  8. Your home is so beautiful. Love the windows and all that light. Can't imagine your bravery at tackling the clock. I know it will turn out beautifully.

  9. Someday Penny that is what I want to get. A mora clock...I saw a bunch of them at Brimfield and most were grey or creme. I think your clock would look beautiful like that.

  10. I can only imagine what you will do with that clock. I hope that you enjoyed your booth at the antique mall. Now I will click to see your flea market makeover.
