Gahhhh!!! It's gigantic (seriously--the picture doesn't do it justice...it's at least 20 inches across--if not more), it's covered in burlap and it's antique looking. Could it be any more perfect? Actually yes. Yes, it could.
That sucker was originally $60 and I picked it up for $12 on clearance. The clock works, but the hands stick and cause them to move when they're not supposed to, but that's just fine with me. Again, it's giant, it's covered in burlap and it's antique-y. Even if it doesn't keep time, it's PERFECT for my house. And I've been on the hunt for a statement piece for our living room.
Now, put on your imagination goggles with me for a second. There's a super long wall spanning from my dining room into my living room that has two double doors along the wall going out to the screened in porch, but there's still a long wall that was devoid of any decorations whatsoever. The previous homeowner (aka my aunt) had her TV on that wall with the furniture facing it. When we moved in, I looked at that wall for our TV, but realized, because of the placement of the room, I wouldn't be able to center my couch with the TV if we did that...BIG problem for my OCD. So we switched the room around and left this wall alone. Here's where the imagination goggles need to be on. (FYI, I apologize for this terrible picture. I was trying to take it in between Avery's "I hold you!" whines).
You ready for my plans? My mom has an old white wooden mantle in her basement that I'm going to
Saw this idea in one of my mom's magazines last year around Christmas (Country Living? BHG?) and fell in love and have been obsessing over the idea ever since.
If I can get everything to work out (mom letting me have it, husband painting and mounting it...), I hope to have after pictures soon!!
