Have you ever seen a giant oversized glow-in-the-dark clock? No? Me either.
But my son was SOOOOOO hopeful that this was one when he saw us going to hang it in the dining room!
I’ve been looking for weeks to find just the right piece to hang on the wall above my new/old buffet. I already had mirrors on one wall and I’ve really been trying to find a balance between still having a touch of the ‘formal’ in my formal dining room but yet cozying it up a bit too.
So when I found this giant clock with a distressed white frame at HomeGoods I knew it was just the thing!
And this week as my husband went to hang it up for me, my son came into the room and not only thought that this giant clock was WAY cool but was absolutely, positively convinced that it had to glow-in-the-dark!
I tried to explain to him how very unlikely that was but…well…have you been around many almost 12 year old boys? They tend to think that even though they’ve only been on the planet for a short time they are the resident experts on everything. 😉
Granted, it would have actually been kinda cool to have a giant glow-in-the-dark clock in our dining room, but sadly his hopes were dashed when he realized it was just the plain ol’ version.
But, even though it doesn’t glow-in-the-dark, I think it’s definitely contributing to my dining room finally starting to ‘glow’ a little bit more.
I fell in love with a mirror at HomeGoods as well but realized that it was just too small for the wall…so I bought 2 of them and hung them next to each other.
I think it just adds an extra layer of texture and I love the soft blue paint on the frames.
I think the best part is knowing that as we get older and our eyesight begins to go at least we will have one clock we won’t have to squint at!
So, what do you think? Did I make the right choice for this wall?
Hope you are having a fantastic weekend sweet friends!
