This popped up in my Facebook memories today, and I thought I’d share with my fellow DI.Y.’ers!

I’m SUPER sentimental when it comes to family heirlooms, so when Chris and I got married and combined all of our furniture, we knew that each of us would have to get rid of some things.

But, this was one piece that I wasn’t willing to part with: the grandfather clock that my Dad’s mom passed down to me.

This clock is so special–my MeMe, as I called her, bought this clock when I was little, and handwrote each address that they had lived–and before MeMe passed away, she wrote my name & address underneath hers.

I was nine years old when we lost MeMe, so my parents brought her clock to our house, where it stayed until I grew up and moved into my own apartment.

In 2017, Chris and I moved into our new house, and although I knew that I wanted to keep my Meme’s clock, the dark brown didn’t fit in with our color scheme of bright, airy colors.

So, I hit up Pinterest for ideas on how to breathe some new life into this old treasure…
