I’ve decided now that I’m unemployed and on the job hunt, I’m going to be more of a do-it-yourself-er.
I wish I was talking about making cute jewelry, or helping my sister with her wedding invitations, but no. Instead, I’m talking about fixing things around my apartment. Before we go any further you should realize I have no idea what I’m doing, and I’ve also assumed that do it yourself videos will be of no use to me.
The first thing to fix was the lock. The lock that I may have, kind of, accidentally already broke. My thought process was, what’s the worst that can happen? It’s not like I’ll end up locked into my apartment unable to take the deadbolt off…right? wrong. After futzing with it I was able to get the latch to close, it just wouldn’t open. Not even with the key. So I was forced to unscrew it and tape it to the wall…you know, like the normal person I am.
Next up was the bathroom mirror, about three weeks ago our mirror broke. In a freak, cough paranormal cough, accident our mirror leaped off the wall and landed on the floor smashing into pieces, leaving a gaping hole in our wall. Not only a bit creepy, but very inconvenient. Instead of telling our landlord we needed it replaced, I decided to take things into my own hands…by buying a wrong sized mirror, being too lazy to return it, and making a cardboard frame. I can see you’re impressed…i’d be more than willing to create one of these gems for you (only 19.95 (plus shipping and handling) )
The one thing I seem to have done right so far was add the soft felt bottoms to all of the chair/table surfaces…although I seemed to have gone a little bit crazy with it.
I think Kate is starting to tire of my whole Ms. Fix It ‘tude. Who knows what is next, maybe I’ll make a lamp out of the three light bulbs I broke while putting together a lamp, or attempt to walk on our broken porch…nothing is safe now.Nothing.
