Recently, we’ve been on the hunt for a new clock. To be honest, we haven’t actually had a true clock in our apartment for the past few years. But the coffee maker just isn’t doing it for us anymore; it was time to buy a “real” time telling device with a face and hands.
So, I set out on a search to find a clock that both of us liked. Remember when I talked about getting guys involved in home design? Yeah, well, this is an instance where that got a little tricky.
My initial candidates were something like this:
But, upon the husband’s inspection, they were promptly thrown out on their faces (sorry, that pun got away from me!) Enter Josh’s requirements for a clock: artsy, maybe with wood?, must have numbers, NO ticking noise!
So, on the search continued, but it seemed nothing online would suffice or was way too expensive.
Well, on a short trip to Hobby Lobby, I decided to peruse the clock section and see what was happening over there. Bingo! I found a clock that was a little quirky, had numbers, and would fit in with both of our styles. And, as luck would have it, clocks were 50% off!!! Kismet, I say!
I brought this baby home to the tune on about $13.00 and proudly showed my spoils to Josh. His response? Underwhelming to say the least, but deep down, I think he knows there is no clock in existence that is “Josh’s perfect clock” and the cute, little clock I brought home will suit us well.
So, we hung it up on our black bar wall and there it lives to tell us the time and when we’re late. I love it!
Now, of course, we’re faced with a new challenge: coming up with some awesome, inexpensive DIY art to spruce up the bar wall. Something fun and custom to us. So, where do I turn? Why, Pinterest of course! Here are a few options that I’m considering:
I love the idea of having 4-5 unique pieces lined up underneath but I also LOVE the DIY nail and string art. One big message to inspire you every morning. We shall see.
