This afternoon, I got the floor up in the dressing room and began to make inroads in the kitchen. I need to make further inroads before I can consider putting down more flooring in the dressing room. I’ll work on that tonight and then get the dressing room floor in tomorrow. My work was interrupted more than once by my need to attend to splinters.
I stopped at about 3:30 to go and check out a used furniture store in Willowpoint to see if they might have the lingerie chest I need to finish up the dressing door. Finding the right item would be real motivation to work late into tonight getting the floor in so that I could then deal with my clothes. I need to do that to make progress in the kitchen. Picture what you will. 😀
The store didn’t have a suitable dresser, although one came close to the right dimensions. Unfortunately 5″ too much is way too much in an RV. 🙁 But it was worth it to go there when I found an item that was on my ‘unrealistic wish’ list.
Since I’m putting the dinette table at counter height, I planned to get a stool or two to sit at. I had a hankering for a certain style popular in the 1950’s that doubles as a step-stool and would be ideal for getting into my upper cabinets and maybe even the loft. I did some research and found out that those stools are rare and expensive now as they are a hot item. I decided I wasn’t going to expend any energy in looking for one.
So imagine my surprise when I stumbled on this at the store:
It just needs a good scrubbing with an SOS pad, a reupholstering (easy, the padded pieces are screwed in), and new non-slide material on the steps.
The lady let me have it for $20, taxes included.
This was after I picked up another small item for the study (more on that later once I figure out what I’m going to do with it) that was marked $9.95 and which she let me have for $9, taxes included.Share on Facebook
