We all know the weather will change soon (the Farmers’ Almanac says snow in 10 days) but for the moment it’s 18C (65F) outside and things are getting done.
I gave up on the toilet and called Stanley. He let me know that it wasn’t my fault I couldn’t get it done (for that alone he stays on my good guy list). Not only did he fix the )$U%% thing, he also installed the range hood so I now have light while I’m cooking.
He and Bryce stacked a cord of my firewood on the front porch for me. This is my “if we have a blizzard I won’t have to trek to the garage to get some fuel” pile. I have a cupboard inside with 2 days worth of wood, and I got a big basket from IKEA to put next to the stove for even more. I’m set. 🙂
I installed the first of the grab bars in the bathroom and I’ll put the other two in once I’ve resealed the tub. I also set up motion detector security lights outside which will illuminate the driveway.
The big news, though, is what arrived in the mail. I have spent weeks looking for feet I could use on the kitchen island project – both to raise it to the height I want and to give it the look I’m aiming for.
I had exhausted my usual real world and online options – either they just offered to sell me 1950s type sofa legs or they planned to charge me $100 for each foot.
In desperation I typed tablelegs.com into Google and OMG it exists. The result arrived today. Not only did they have the bun feet I wanted, but they also put the dowel in for me.
They have other things on their site – including brass drawer pulls which are going to help with the other kitchen project I have going.
It’s a really good day. 🙂
