My parents gave me a good heavy-duty step ladder. The woodwork is doing a happy dance because it might just get finished now. The top few feet of the doors and windows are still white as the driven snow. I couldn't reach them before even standing on a chair or the flimsy itty bitty step ladder, and our big ladder is too tall for me to manuever easily. So hurray! Maybe I'll get to mark that project 100 percent some time this century after all!
Darwin got a compound miter saw with a laser guide. Hurray again! He plans to first put the saw to work on a built-in corner cabinet for the kitchen. My Fiestaware now resides on a weak-n-wobbly Kmart hutch. I'll breath easier the day I get to move it all to my sturdy new corner cabinet.
That corner of the kitchen will also look a lot better when the cabinet is there, and either the side of the pantry cabinet is covered up or we can finish painting it out. That ragged scrap of wood showing is not cute.
Speaking of not cute, that light fixture. Gag. I forget how ugly it is until I see it in pictures.
