joy on the domestic front

August 2, 2008 at 8:27 pm (domestic life, home improvement) (, , , )

I thought I was going to talk about the evils of crown molding. Because it is evil. Today we finally put it up on the top of our bookcase. Ummmm… it is no where near as perfect as I had hoped. ( or the DH had hoped ). It is doable.

This is not a great picture ,but you can get an idea. It was a rather frustrating project, but we needed to get it up because the molding was in the way of pulling up the carpet and putting down the floor. Not fun.

But our domestic Karma was good today. We went to the local hardware store to buy less than a dollars worth of stuff. ( No,really… we didn’t even grab any cleaning supplies). On our way to the checkout, DH spotted a bathroom counter top that included an under counter sink. There was a salesperson near by.

DH: That counter and vanity….

Salseperson: Counter is 50.00, I’m not sure how much the vanity is.

DH: We don’t want the vanity — can the counter be cut with regular tools?

SP: Oh yes, it is Silestone This piece needs a skillsaw ,it would be awkward on the tablesaw. By the way, this piece would normally be about 800.00.

I am ashamed to say , I was almost ready to let it go. Happily, I had been talking about taking advantage of bargain stuff all day, so we were able to take advantage of a real bargain.
