Nothing says Germany like a Cuckoo clock. You feel like you must bring one home with you but the big brown Cuckoo just isn’t for me. I was recently in a shop in Füssen, Germany and saw a beautiful Pink Cuckoo Clock. I thought surely other clock stores would have these and I could shop around for a good price but I have yet to find another one. I searched the internet but a real German Cockoo in Pink is hard to find so when I found a little 6″ Cuckoo for 20€ ($27) at an antique shop I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Here he is below getting ready for his makeover.

You may remember this little guy from a previous post. It is a 6" German made Cuckoo with mechanical movement so I made sure I didn't get any paint on the face and movement using painters tape.

On the right are the results of all my (not so) hard work. After a few coats of paint I have a German Cuckoo that I am tickled pink and completely cuckoo about. I love the pink but any color you like would work. I have seen one done in white that was absolutely beautiful. If your not up to painting one your self I have done a little research for you and found the one shown below. It will set you back a little more than 20€($27) but then again you don’t have to do any work.
