The funny thing is that I thought I would have a very classy black and white living room with damask print on the chairs and walls covered in black and white pictures. I thought I was going to grow up and be Audrey Hepburn. Well, I didn't. But, here's the clock that Audrey Hepburn would have purchased.
While, I still like it up close, it looks like a simple black box from across the room. That's a little hint for everyone who is just getting things for their house. Always look at things from the distance people will primarily be seeing them. Anyways, I wanted to add something to it, so that it would read less Audrey Hepburn and more.. me. :)
Ever since we made our cork board, we have had some foam board left over. I cut a triangle from the board, and used it as a stamp.
A little white paint later, I was left with a quick geometric update that helps me like this bookshelf immensely more. It's not the only update I'm making to this bookshelf; in fact I'm adding white in several places to tie it all together. Here's what it looks like from a little farther away.
