Painted Key Hole Necklace

The last few days have been so busy around here and I haven't had much time for creating. I've been tackling lots of other unrelated pesky chores on my "to do" list while trying to work on a few projects out in the garage.  It's been so darn hot here this week, so I've had to call it quits out there by mid morning.  At least I finished one project....

I think this might be in the running for the world's smallest chalk paint project.  I painted it with a few drops of Old White ASCP, gave it a coat of clear wax, and then distressed it just a little.  Did I need to use chalk paint?  No, but I was using this color for the base coat on a shelf and figured I had a few extra seconds to squeeze in one more quick project.

That's the "before" key hole in the center.  This was part of the hardware stash I recently purchased at an antique show.

I glued the little watch face on back with E6000 and topped it off with a tiny rhinestone.  Pearls and glass beads were added to the chain, then a decorative antiqued connector was attached to the top screw hole.

My one and only completed project so far this week.  
The shelf is still waiting for a coat of wax.
