Ok so this is a quick glance at how my (and sometimes my wife’s mind works)... We were looking at the clearance halloween merchandise and I bought a countdown timer to use next year.
When we got home we were talking about the timer and if there might be other uses for it. We are taking a vacation in the upcoming months and thought it would be cool if we could count down for it to help get our daughter excited. Decided to make a new timer using the halloween one. But kept talking about possibilty of changing it for different uses. So first I took it apart…
The decided to use some of the chalk board paint and scrap MDF I had around. It came out looking like this.
and now we can just program it to count down to the next big event.
We like the idea and I know I can make a new one to look even better. May be making a few in the future. Let me know any thoughts and if anyone happens to know where I could pick up more of the countdown timers cheaply..
