Recently my laundry room clock stopped working.
I thought the battery was dead.
But I soon realized that the clock hands
were loose and not moving to the next number.
I guess I am not surprised
because the clock is not hung in the best location.
You see, the cabinet door opens right onto the clock.
I am always careful opening that door,
but I am sure after many accidental knocks,
the clock just couldn’t take it anymore and stopped working.
This is not an expensive clock.
I think I only paid $30 or $40 dollars for it several years ago
so paying to get it fixed probably wouldn’t be worth it.
I know I ordered it online somewhere
and could probably find another to replace it,
but I am afraid the same thing will happen again.
So I guess I have two options. One, I could buy another clock. This time I would look for one with a glass covering so the clock hands won’t get bumped. (Of course, I have to be careful not to smash the glass!) I like the look of a white face with black around the outside. I would like to stay in the same size range of 12-14″ to fit the space.
Something like this would be nice.
Unfortunately this one is 24″ and way too big for the space!
But I do love the look so I would love to find a smaller one.
My second option would be to hang something else in that spot
and maybe put a clock up above where my “Life is Good” sign hangs.
I could move the sign to a new location, possible over the cabinets.
Then I could hang a new clock above the door so I could still see the clock from the room as well as when I am walking by the laundry room on my way out the garage. I just don’t know if I want the clock up that high.
Anyway, those are my ideas.
I really like having a clock in the laundry room
so getting rid of one altogether isn’t really an option.
I should also mention that I am thinking of repainting in there now.
See what a simple clock replacement can turn into?
It never ends….
