June 5, 2009Our House Update – New Clock on Fireplace
Happy Friday, everyone! I am pretty sure I haven’t posted pictures of our new starburst clock yet, but if I have, I apologize!
We picked up this beauty at an junk shop in Bay City about 2 months ago for $7. I totally consider it a steal. I know it isn’t as flashy as some I have seen lately, but I really love the simpleness of it. Plus, it is just black and brass, which matches the fireplace perfectly. We don’t have to worry about wood accents that are impossible to match with our woodwork!
Ugh. And ignore all the 80’s light fixtures in the background. Some of those will be dealt with this weekend, and some when we find replacement spotlights that are true to the period. And brass would be nice!
A side view of the clock. Don’t worry, we didn’t bore a hole in the fireplace to hang it up. There was already a hole there from the previous owners, just waiting for us to put up this clock!
Here is a close-up. May not be the best one out there, but I like it. Oh, and it was converted to run on one AA battery. No cords. Score!
