Atomic Starburst Clock

I know all the purists out there will hate me but I totally redid this clock. In my opinion it was definitely not cool...but it was cheap ($4 at a flea market) and had potential.

Yuck, right? Well, I guess someone might like it...

I took the electric stuff out and replaced it with a battery operation (no more ugly cord). I cut off the flowers and then I spray painted the sprockets and hands silver, which were originally brass. I replaced the flowers with wooden balls. And this was the result:

Now I'm trying to decide if I want to leave the balls as they are (natural wood) or paint them to match the face, which is off white. Or maybe something like this:

...or multi-colored like this:

What do you think?
