No--my husbands name is not Ross. And its OK--cause at this moment even he is in love with Ross! Why do you ask? Because the other day when I was shopping at ROSS for one of the only times in my life (but will certainly not be the last) I found this:
Now let me back up--I had wanted a LARGE clock to hang in our family room--but DARN THOSE THINGS ARE EXPENSIVE!! Even the ones at walmart were about $80! Too rich for my blood. So I had found a medium sized one at Fred Meyer for $30 and I had a $10 off coupon thing--so I could rationalize spending $20 on a new clock.
So this is what I had for a couple weeks.
It was cute--but to be honest--I was still disappointed as it wasn't the big clock I had envisioned on that wall. But I had resigned myself to the fact that I would never be willing to shell out the cash for a bigger one. I was just going to have to learn to live with this one.
So when I happened to find this one at Ross--I about fainted at the price!!!
YES--THAT SAYS $4.99 PEOPLE!!! (And as I walked thru Ross carrying my massive clock everyone stopped and asked me where I got it and how much it was. And then they all died--just like I did--when I told them how much it was! Even the Ross checker did a double take when the price rang up and then told me that I just got a really good deal! Like I didn't already know!!!)
Anyways--about the clock. Even though it was beautiful as it was--it wasn't exactly the colors I wanted--but I knew that I had a can of ORB at home that would do the trick!
The awesome part too was that when I got it home and took it out of the box, I found that the clock part is made to come out easily from the metal surround--much like a piece of glass comes out of a picture frame.
So I didn't even have to tape off anything! I just popped out the clock and gave it a little coat of paint!
And sitting pretty on my wall:
Now THAT is what I had imagined the wall to look like! And I accomplished it for only $4.99! And I get to return the other clock and get back my $30!!
I think it really does a great job balancing out the room.
Thank you Ross! I promise I will be back very soon--and if you could arrange to have the perfect curtains for my bedroom there next time for super cheap--that would be great!
