What’s Up Clock

As you know, our eating area has gone through some recent changes.  I have not yet pointed out/posted about one fun change.  At least I think it’s fun. 

I was struggling with the iron piece above our patio doors. (I don’t have a photo of this piece with our new lighting.)…


It just didn’t feel right to me.  Do you have pieces like that in your house?  Things that are okay but just don’t feel right.

I just couldn’t figure out what to replace it with.  We don’t want curtains around the patio doors.  Does the area look weird without curtains?  We don’t care.  We had curtains once.  They were horribly annoying.  Less annoying trumps perfect design.  I had seen some photos with words above the door.  I’m over words. I have a few in my house and don’t want to go overboard.

I was watching some random HGTV show and saw a clock above patio doors.  Why didn’t I think of that?  I decided to try it out.  (Excuse the poor lighting.  We won’t see sun again in Iowa until approximately May.)




I like it.  A lot.  It fits the rustic/industrial/grown-up theme that we now have going on.  It may not be everyone’s cup of tea but it’s mine…with honey.

This area has come a long ways…

Anything in your home that just doesn’t feel right?  Any other above the door ideas?  Wait, don’t tell me.  I might change my mind.

***Speaking of changing my mind. I couldn’t bring myself to order the shower curtain.  I received some good feedback about the use of stripes and the narrow room.  I may have another idea in mind.  For today.  Talk to me tomorrow.  It will have changed.***
