Did I mention how much I enjoy bringing things back to life? Yes, I think it was in my intro to this site written 4 years ago. Nothing’s changed. In order to restore something to life it needs to have started of this earth – like wood or, even, metal. Plastic doesn’t have that quality. It’s a fake thing and has but one life and when it fades, cracks or breaks, it is done. Game over. Washed up on some beach. A sad reminder not to confuse lifespan with useful life.
That’s why restoring Spartans is so much fun (Sorry, Airstreams. You contain way to much polyethylene). Take the bathroom door mechanism I restored yesterday. It is an innoccuous thing but in the right hands can be made lovely.
Alright, enough potty talk. I’ve other progress to show you.
Meanwhile, back near the ‘fridge I decided to create an open, reach-in cubby instead of another closet (confession: I didn’t have a spare door). I finished-out the interior and will need to put in shelves.
The search for flooring continues and has taken on a bit of urgency as it has to be done before the bed, range and toilet are completed/installed. I got a couple of cork samples but they don’t quite work. I’ve another sample on order. Will keep you posted.
