The Most Frivolous Thing in our Home

I bought a disco ball off ebay for $36 in February.

Some of you noticed polka dot lights in our bedroom photos–it’s the disco ball.

He sits over there on my husband’s side on the table.  And for about two hours every day, puts on a show.

It’s quite possibly, the most needless purchase I’ve ever made, but for under $40 it was worth it for the fun it adds to our home. I think every home needs a little quirk.  Plus, my husband has rented one in the past for parties at our church, now, he can just use ours!  See, saving the church money, that’s me and my disco ball.  That’s how we roll.

I originally bought him for the coffee table in the front room.

And even tried him in the laundry room but, I realized that the sun doesn’t shine there.  And putting your disco ball where the sun don’t shine is just disco ball abuse.  It’s a waste of a perfectly good disco ball.

Disco balls.  They’re not just for discos anymore.

  1. I have one in my office, my hubs insisted on buying it for me when we were Christmas shopping this last year. He said it’s all he’s ever heard me talk about since we met 6 years ago, so he bought it. I hung it in my office, until just TODAY, when a home stager came through (we’re listing our house next month) and told me I should take it down. Sadly, I just did. However, unbeknownst to her, I will be strategically placing it elsewhere in the house. I don’t care what she says, it’s quirky and whimsical and so is my house, and that’s exactly the vibe I want it to give off.

  2. Love this! I have a vintage disco ball I’m was wondering where to put in my new home. ANYWHERE! Thanks for sharing
