We have finally bought some furniture for our house! You do remember when we moved in, right? Yes, eons ago.
It’s not like we don’t have any furniture. We bought some nice stuff when we lived in Birmingham: a beautiful dining room set, a cute kitchen table, a nice upholstered chair and the best armoire ever. BUT we still have the same wicker chairs we bought in our first apartment. We have never (in 11 years of marriage) owned bedside tables. We don’t have a desk. (Thank goodness I have a laptop, right? Imagine toting our desktop around. Heh.) The only piece of furniture in Lydia’s room is her toddler bed. No one has a dresser except for Asa. We have an entire room that has ZERO furniture—not even a basket. I’m telling you, if anyone came to our house and didn’t know us, they’d think we were squatters!
We had been looking for a furniture store that is slightly cooler than Pottery Barn but not as modern as Ikea. (Both stores I adore!) And we found it! Nadeau in Atlanta is divine. They sell furniture at wholesale prices and I just wanted to cart the whole store into my car.
Anyway, I haven’t taken pictues of our NEW BEDSIDE TABLES (yet!). But now that they are cozily nestled beside our bed, our alarm clocks look positively trashy. It’s just a normal black digital alarm clock but it just seems out of place on our pretty new furniture.
I started clicking around last night to find some cool alarm clocks but can’t find anything. I’d love some rustic, vintagey looking clocks like these at Pottery Barn…
But I can’t read that in the middle of the night. I’m too blind!
I found tons of “COOL & UNIQUE!” posts about alarm clocks but mainly they’d show the crazy clocks. And as much as I like to be different…uhm, well, I don’t think a Wake-n-Bacon clock is actually a good idea…
Seriously. Have you ever seen a good looking alarm clock? I went to Apartment Therapy and all the usual designs sites but couldn’t find anything. I wish they made beautiful digital clocks!
And don’t worry. I’ll be posting pictures of the new furniture. After all, that’s how this blogging gig even started! But I’m waiting to do it justice because WE ARE GOING TO BUY A DESK THIS WEEKEND! Wheeeee! I feel like a bootlegger’s wife! (<—movie quote alert!)
