An ongoing blog following a young married couple as they renovate their railroad apartment in Brooklyn, New York and a crazy falling down farmhouse up in the Catskills. Both husband and wife work full-time jobs each day, so almost all of their projects will be squeezed into any free second each night and every weekend. Hence the name: After-Dinner Design, though come to think of it, maybe we should change it to "So Tired Design"...)

Finally, something to show for our trouble!
After much research, pondering, vacillating, and finally some deciding, our George Nelson-esque Orange Ball Clock arrived today-- hazzahh! It really looks terrific, and well worth the $80.00 we paid (and not nearly worth the $325.00 an authentic version of these clocks goes for). I'm not sure what a clock would have to do to make me want to pay $325.00 for it, but I think I would expect more than just reliable time-telling.
The good news is that the arrival of the clock inspired me to finish hanging up the remaining art in Julian's bedroom in Brooklyn, so now we can now proudly post those photos too!
