The clock has arrived!!

After waiting a long 2 1/2 weeks for my clock to arrive, it's finally here!!! If you know me at all, you know that I am an avid eBayer! I am usually on that website atleast once a day scoping out any new listings. Popular searches for me lately are: wrought iron wall, Pier 1, Crate and Barrel, and Target Home. I most recently found a clock that would look great above our stairs on eBay and had to order it (sorry Stuart).

So... as you can see from the pictures, I have been struggling trying to find the perfect decor for above our TV in the living room. I ended up taking back the clock we bought at Target, bought a mirror, and then ordered the clock of my dreams on eBay!! It was a long process, but I am very happy with the finished product. Here are the fun changes below! It feels more like home every day we are here!

Ikea mirror (now in guest room)...

Clock from Target (returned because yellow face clashed with white sconces)...

Target mirror!!

Stuart risking his life to hang our clock! Thanks honey!!

More curtains...

I finally made the decision to order longer curtains for our bedroom... I ended up ordering the same color and kind, just longer. I have been addicted to lately, there are so many good deals. Atleast 3 times a week, I am searching the clearance section to see what other items are out there!!

Much better!!

I then moved the shorter ones to our guest bedroom... Stuart helped put up the curtain rod of course!

Twin bed anyone?

So today, my Mom and Sister made the trip to Watertown to bring an extra bed they had in storage to us. We had two rooms with no furniture, so this is a good addition to the home. I then took a side table from Stuart's bachelor pad days that was this ugly wood and painted it white. I then added a new knob to freshen it up. I think the room turned out nice. Now I just need to go thrifting more to find more items for the room!

Made the bed...
Found some items from my closet to add..
