This Rust-oleum Glow-in-the-Dark Clock was a fun thing I wanted to do. This old dead clock had been staring at me while I contemplated life in the bathroom for a long time.

Rust-oleum Glow-in-the-Dark Clock!
I thought I would breathe some new life into the bland old clock. Honestly, the hardest part was getting it to open and then deciding what I’d like to paint inside. I think next time I’ll use a finer brush to try to make all of the numbers glow as the six turned out much better than I expected.
If you have any of those run-of-the-mill plastic wall clocks, it is time to upcycle it! Open it carefully using a thin slot screwdriver.
Follow the paint manufacturer’s directions for surface prep. I’m cleaning the surface so that the paint will adhere.
Paint as few, or as many details as you want. It is all up to you! A finer brush will make painting a bit easier to be accurate.
It is always better to have a friend or family member (even the furry kind) helping you with a project.
And now you can see what time it is, even in the dark.
