To paint or not to paint

Picture of my Great Room,  still a work in progress as we just moved in last August. I plan on hanging clock somewhere in this room.
White Cuckoo 
My ClockThis is my cuckoo, I haven't hung it up for the last 5  years simply because the wood doesn't really match my decor. I really want to paint it all white similar to the clock above. Is this crazy? Help!!!

xoxo,
Cathleen

I'm with Courtney. If it was an heirloom, I'm not sure I could do it. But if I purchase something on my own... I whip out the spray paint anytime!

It's not a family heirloom, i did purchase it myself in Solvang, Ca ( about $350.00). But, it is hand carved from germany! Help!

Oh I say go for it Cathleen - I reckon the cuckoo clock's soul will thank you for giving it a bright new white life & ridding it of that awful brown look!

Better to paint it and use it then not paint it and leave it in a box somewhere stored. I say go for it!! It will be fabulous and you will enjoy it more.

I think it'd be beautiful white.
