Some Little Improvements

During the floor scrubbing and prep for sealing and polish there are some other small projects to keep things interesting.
For some reason the drain pipe in the family room bathroom required a huge gash in the drywall to fit through the wall. I saw a light fixture at the Restore and it occurred to me to use the base plate to cover the gash and make a decorative statement. I used the dremel tool to cut a large enough hole in the plate to slip over the pipe. I don’t remember why the supply lines are offset from the drain. It looks wrong but there might have been a reason!

I wonder if I’ll ever finish cleaning up drywall dust. It was stuck pretty badly in the bark of the log bed footboard. I had to use a scrubbie, a brush and eventually even the steamer to get it looking clean again.

Although most of our stuff is packed away, I found a magnetic knife bar in a box of tools. I bought it from the Ikea discount room back in Arizona. I had one of these in the Arizona house and it worked well for storing our good knives close at hand. So I took a little time and put it up under the kitchen wall cabinet.

I can work all day on little projects but the big ones are making some progress too.
