Railroad Clock

One thing I wanted in our family room was a BIG CLOCK.  I was doing some online shopping one day and found this awesome clock on Hobby Lobby's website.  It was 50% off and and with free shipping it was a great deal.

It's a big clock too - 23 inches in diameter and 4 inches thick.  I also wanted a clock with real numbers, not roman numerals, lines, or anything crazy.  This way my boys, a few still learning to tell time on a clock, can hopefully figure out what time it is too.  But most of all,  It's a great addition to our family room. 

I found a few other things to hang up on the same wall.  An arrow that lights up and "H" from Michael's, a family saying on burlap from Kohl's and a family photo.

This room is really starting to come together.

Picture Frame Update

So after moving into our house, it took me forever to figure out what I wanted to hang on the walls in our family room.  I knew I wanted to do some family photos and individual pictures of the kids, but putting it all together was the hard part.  So after a few months, I decided to just run with this idea.

I found these cool grayish wood colored frames at Michael's.

I also found these clips.

I moved the glass and put it behind the matting then hot glued the clip to the matting.  This way I can easily change out the pictures without having to take down the frames.  I love how they turned out.

Now it feels like the family room is finally getting put together.
