I love the shelf I put up in the toilet room, but it hasn’t been that useful since I haven’t been able to secure anything up there. I ran a tension curtain rod across the opening, but the slightest bump would dislodge it and everything would end up on the floor.
Fast forward to The Apartment. It had a long hallway to the main part of the room. I wanted to hang a heavy blanket across it to muffle noise and to block my view of the front door from the desk. My maintenance guy suggested I hang the blanket on a tension rod. I replied that the blanket I had in mind would be too heavy for one. He looked at me like I was crazy and told me to go look at shower curtain tension rods.
Shower curtain tension rods?
I ran over to Walmart, poked around the bathroom stuff, and found nice big adjustable tension rods that sure looked a lot sturdier than the flimsy curtain rods I was familiar with. Small hiccup; they were $20. It was one thing to pay that for 80 square feet of flooring, but I was not paying that to block a hallway! But then I had an epiphany and did some mental comparing between the width of the hallway and the width of the toilet room. I wasn’t looking at spending $20 on The Apartment but rather buying something that would serve me in the RV.
That this is not going anywhere! I can now feel comfortable storing the ginormous extra bag of cat food up there!Share on Facebook
