We are nearing the end of our DIY kitchen remodel.
Our last stage is to remove the sink base, the sink and the dishwasher in order to put in the new cabinets, sink and dishwasher. Hooray! But, being the practical people that we are . . . we are waiting until the last possible minute to remove the old fixtures and appliance.
Because once they are gone, we have to move quickly . . . or . . . survive without a sink.
Not fun at all!
That is why when hubs was working on the kitchen the other day, removing everything BUT the sink base and sink, I was aglow with kind words for his smart and calculated remodeling decisions.
That is, I was aglow until I heard him hollering for me at 10 pm after I was all snuggly in bed.
I stomped downstairs to find hubs, singlehandedly holding up the sinkbase and sink against the wall. Sort of like Atlas holding up the earth. Only not so chiseled . . . or poised. Apparently, these original cabinets were not, in fact, affixed to the wall, so when hubs removed some of the other side cabinets and countertop, the sinkbase and sink, gave way.
All I knew was that the sight of him holding up the weight of those cabinets and sink and dishwasher was, in a word, hysterical, so, naturally . . . I burst out laughing.
He was not amused. ( I can't imagine why not?!)
And, that, my dear friends, is how I came to have a bungee cord holding up my sink.
I am not kidding.
And, here's the proof.
Quite resourceful, aren't we?
And now, what creative uses have you come up with for a bungee cord?!
