The Perfect Spot For My Thrifted Clock


 I can't believe I bought this clock over a year ago at Goodwill.
It's big..24 inches in diameter and from Bombay & Co and cost me less than thirteen dollars.
 It even works!   Problem was, I didn't know where to hang it.  
So it sat propped up against the long wall in the basement. 
I didn't want to make a decision so monumental and important (or it could have been laziness).
As we were fixing up the house for this party, hubs asked me where I wanted to hang "that clock"? I knew I couldn't put it off any longer.  We had recently added the drum shade and recessed light converter over the sink of our basement snack center and it still looked a little empty over there.
 So I suggested we hang it over the water cooler.
I'm really happy with it's new spot (so much better than the floor!)

It gives that wall a little more oomph and interest as you come down the steps into the basement. 
Bonus, you can see the time!
The room is evolving from a playroom (as we craigslist all the toys) to a family room and I have more plans for it so stay tuned!

Have you ever waited a year to hang something?

I love the clock! That is a perfect spot for it.

I still have two picture frames on my floor that need to be hung...from when we moved to Chicago 8 months ago! I'm pretty sure they will be there until we move again!
