Little annoying repairs


The not so pretty part of having a home is when something wears out and needs replacing. A dumb piece of hardware, we're trying to find it and so far, non of the big box stores have it.

I'm talking about my silverware drawer - the metal track on the inside (bottom mount) is broken and it's difficult to pull out and close the drawer and it is a heavily used drawer at that. It gets knocked off its track due to the roller thingy, that is broken. This house was built in 1992 - not that old but still hard to find. When you go into Cabinet Stores, they don't want to sell you a $2.50 track - NOPE, they want to sell you completely new kitchen cabinets. I think I found where I can order it online but the husband is such a know-it-all at times and believes he can get it at some store. We'll see.



I want to wallpaper the inside of my cabinets - I know I know, kinda crazy. Especially since I don't have glass doors - so I'd only see it when I open the cabinet door. 


Well, I need to get my drawer fixed first...not to mention everything else I want to do.

  1. I really want to paint my kitchen cupboards but Harvey keeps saying no. I think it would brighten up the room. Love the idea of doing wall paper inside.

    God bless.

    1. I hope to get around to sometime this year - before Thanksgiving.

  2. I almost never go from store to store looking for anything anymore. I love shopping online. A friend spent half a day recently driving from one store to another to find a battery for something. Waste of time in my opinion.

    1. I agree. All you do, is if you do find a place that is able to get it - then they order it online and add their work to your cost. Waste of money, too.

  4. We were living in a rental house years ago and the cupboards were so dark inside that I finally took some blue and white contact paper and papered the insides. It really brightened up the cabinets, and I realized that blue and white in a kitchen is a classic for a really good reason!
