The clock hangs above a sofa table.  We just moved into our new home 4 months ago and I havent gotten up the courage to see what lies behind that 70s paneling.  Another project for another day. 
The clock is 32 across.

I painted the entire medallion cream and then dry brushed a white over the top.

On another garage saling adventure (is saling an actual word?), I purchased a brand new ceiling medallion for $3.00.  It still had the original receipt in the box for $89.00.  The ceiling medallion is quite large at 32" across.   At Walmart I purchased a small wooden circle for the center and a large clock kit on the internet.  The total for the clock (including shipping for the kit) was $15.00.  As the medallion is made out of foam, it is very light and easy to hang.
