time for ikea bravur...

Ahh, Daylight Saving Time, although I'm dragging a bit this morning,
I'll happily sacrifice that hour for the extra light at the end of the day!
 I thought it would be the perfect time to share my favorite clock from Ikea.
 Although it's not as inexpensive as some of my other favs, at $49.99
 I think it's worth every penny, constructed of a stainless steel frame and glass front,
 it's a nice quality.
The Bravur is a vintage look school clock,
with a 24" diameter it makes quite the statement.

Check out these fun ideas for using one...

You always do the best round ups! Perfect images to share the impact of a classic clock. Hope you had a great week-end Pam!

So happy that Spring Break coincides with the time change. Teens just don't adapt well to having that hour taken away (neither does the mommy). I'll be at Starbucks,too. Or McDonalds for that super size $1.00 caffeinated ice tea.
Love those big clocks. Have one in my kitchen at the cabin. Nice statement pieces.

You find the best stuff at Ikea, things I never see. Since the closest one is 2 hours away, I am always rushing around getting only what I have on my list.

We have a green clock from Williams Sonoma that is very similar in style in our kitchen.

Arvind mentioned you yesterday, wondering how you fared with the snow. Hope you have a great week, love the extra daylight!

Great assortment of photos. You always give us good ideas, thank you! I have a knock-off of this big clock from Kohl's, dark background and even has a pendulum in the face. WAY cheaper, too.

I'm on my way to the coffee pot as well. "Spring forward" nearly kills me.

Great post for this sleepy morning Pam! I'm heading to the gym soon and the plan is to stop by Starbucks on the way back. I love these clocks I have one that's similar in my family room. It's actually an old, oak rimmed clock that I repainted with CHALK paint in Graphite.

Happy Monday! xxleslie

That is so funny, I recently told my family that I'm going to put big clocks in our bathrooms so people 'round here will actually make the bus in the morning, AND I am planning an Ikea roadtrip this week, so I wonder what will be coming home with me?? Thank you for these Ikea posts, you make me see some of their products in a whole new light. That clock as a tabletop? So cool!

I love all of your ikea inspirations! I need to make a trip soon. Great pictures!

Love all the uses...Is that a Bathroom I see?
What a room that is!
I slept very late (after 9)...was waiting for the sun to shine! Adjusting...good thing I'm retired! Time doesn't matter!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

Really cool! We're headed to Dallas next week, and you can bet I've got a list for Ikea! :)

I have always wanted to have several clocks with the different time zones under them. Yeah, I'm dragging a bit, too. I do love that extra hour of light, though.

Danielle said...

Definitely lagging. Off to bed (yawn). I promise I'll be caught up by tomorrow... Love the clock inspiration! x
