This clock belongs to my sister-in-law. Her mother found it at a sale for a decent price. She had the clock movement cleaned but the thing was just plain ugly with the crappy green paint. I originally tried to see if I could just get it back to the original finish (piano black, I believe), but that was too damaged. I figured I'd attempt to stain it and if it didn't work, I'd just repaint it black.
One of the trim pieces was missing so I made that from bondo. I was able to save all of the scroll carvings by carefully cleaning the paint out of the 'groove'. She loves it now!
