While driving through Sacramento on the way to check out a used Endless Pool from Craigslist, we drove by the Ikea. We decided to get the pool, arranged delivery, and on the way back stopped to give her the full Ikea experience.
This was largely underwhelming (when you have a spouse who appreciates the fine woodworking, the particle board is visible at 50 meters), but she did say “we need a new bathroom wastebasket, do you think you could build something around this to make it look good?”
Turns out I’d been thinking about just that very problem. So $7 for the cheap plastic wastebasket, $mumbledy for some cherry from my wood stash, and a few hours getting covered in sawdust, and we added this to the bathroom.
(Huh, I haven’t done up a bathroom entry yet. As soon as my websites are back on-line, I’ll have to collect pictures from that and do that!)
