Even tiny homes necessitate a project or two. But, you know what? With tiny homes come tiny projects. J Honestly, I'd be bored out of my skin if I didn’t have something on my "To Do" list every now and then.
First up was to use finish nails to tack all the loose trim pieces back into place. Quick and simple and it looks so much nicer now not having loose trim sticking out in places.
Faux curtains and brackets that stuck way out.
I think it opens it up quite a bit.
Next was to remove all the faux curtains. I didn’t care for them and they weren't really serving any real purpose. I like how uncluttered it makes things look now that they are gone and the plastic tie-backs are no longer a safety hazard. They stuck out quite a bit and had sharp edges to scratch yourself on. And nearly all the clips to hold the mini blinds in place at the bottom were broken so I removed them as well.
A broken support to the shelf under the kitchen sink pretty much rendered this space useless. In a tiny home that just can't be. Originally the shelf was held in place with some wimpy wire staples. I used a couple of drywall screws, careful to make sure they weren't too long, and we are back in business. Now my kitchen and laundry supplies have a proper place to be.
Amazingly, the cabinetry in this trailer is in incredible condition. I've had to adjust a few catches on the closet doors to adjust so they would close properly and that has been about it. There were a few scuffs from normal wear and tear in some places. I quickly took care of that with a piece of paper toweling and some brown shoe polish. After going over the scuffed areas you can hardly tell there was a scuff. The really big spot on one of the kitchen drawers now looks like a part of the wood grain.
Yesterday I put in new wall anchors and reattached the closet rod in the girl's closet. Now they have a place to hang up their jackets and what have you and I get some more space in my closet as a result. I also ran shoe polish over the fronts of their drawers and the closet door so all the scuffs are nicely covered up.
It is still a work in progress and I expect it will be for awhile. It is coming together quite nicely though. I just keep working on it. J
