Atomic Age Clock

Craft & Design Home

Mid-century modern is such a gorgeous era and I love that it has been permeating the design scene recently. A couple years ago I made a starburst mirror episode of Decor It Yourself, and since then have seen countless takes on the trend. In this CRAFT video I follow up with another version of the piece, and make my own atomic age clock to add to the retro feel of my kitchen.

The shade of blue was a vital part of the design, as I wanted to capture the aqua hue in my vintage cake box that so aptly represents a mid-century kitchen. The shade I used is Veranda by California Paints. I also wanted the dowels to really look like chrome, and the metallic spray paint worked wonders!

For the alternate version of a starburst wall hanging, I used the gold spray paint, and it added a lush sheen that really elevates the look of the piece. These pieces look next-level-amazing in a collection like this. A bold statement wall with graphic pieces like these create a strong focal point and anchor to a large space.
