What would you do if your feather duster tangled with your favorite clock…and the clock lost?
Toss it?? Or repurpose it??
I’m sure you can guess what I did. But I’m using it for storage too!

While using my feather duster and listening to 50’s music and yes possibly dancing alone the mantel…the duster tangled around the clock and sent it across the room.
Pieces went everywhere! I scrambled to the floor to collect the pieces…
because of this little girl Emily, tries to grab everything that hits the floor. So far, I’m faster!
After gathering up the pieces and trying to stuff them back in…the clock still didn’t work. I loved this clock. It’s sorta farmhouse with industrial tossed in. Although it could be a bit larger. My eyes have trouble seeing the time.
So it’s time for a broken clock repurpose!
Notice the tabs inside? If I bent them up I can remove all the guts of the clock.
The clock reminds me of a vintage tin. I have an idea!!! I could fill it with paper clips, little sticky notes, and magnets. These I use often at my blogging desk. No more scrounging around the desk drawer.
It looks ugly!
Another idea is forming…
Add a photo and turn it into a frame. My favorite little girl, plus
there’s still room in the back to store a few office supplies.
We are on the search for a new clock. Let me know which one you like the best.
Now to untangle some paper clips. :/
