I called the sink place today and they will send out a replacement as well as a call tag for the existing sink. They assure me that the new sink is the exact same as the one in the garage. The dent is fairly minor and on the rim which will be hidden by the countertop. I was unsuccessful in getting them to simply give me a partial refund.
I think I will buy the Jasmine faucet off the eBay guy. Can’t really justify paying triple to buy it elsewhere. I just have to decide what my “offer” will be.
Just bought the dishwasher clips. They *may* be here early next week.
My arm/elbow/thumb is killing me so I decided to head to the movies. Saw The Proposal. Funny & cute. I was the only one in the theater for quite a while which made the whole laughing-out-loud thing funnier cause I echoed. Srsly.
Popped into IKEA on the way back and pondered the GORM closet solution (and gave myself a papercut on their measuring tapes). Here is the deal. The support posts are made of fairly thin wood that has a sharktooth joint every 12 inches or so – effectively NOT a solid single piece of wood. The shelves could be cut down narrower to accommodate something between 19 and 30 inches, but I’d need to dismantle them a bit to do it. Dismantle IKEA? Yes. Odd. Is it sturdy enough to do the job? Yes. Would MDF posts work better? Mebee. I took the little GORM handout and will reflect further on the actual cost to outfit the closet to my preferences. If it really would be cheaper, I’ll do it. Else it is back to Home Depot.
