We love it but we don't love the hardware it came with. It came with two long screws that are threaded for the majority of its length except the final centimeter near the head. Then the rack slips over top of the remaining screw. But I'm not happy with just a screw. I don't think it's enough to hold all of my knives and am afraid of everything collapsing when I pull one away. But the screws don't fit properly into any anchors we've found. So... we have about ten holes we've had to patch and we've both given up at this point. I just need a breather until I try again!
We have these cuties as well but are waiting for another coat of paint in the bathroom to dry before we can put it up.
We are kind of obsessed! It uses a marble inside to keep the towel up and it's just so sleek. I am a little worried because there's basically a 3M adhesive on the back. Hoping it holds up over time!
There have been toilet woes abounding. We used a wrench to tighten the bolts of our toilet bowl to the floor. Big mistake. We knew you could over-tighten them so we tried to be careful. And everything seemed fine until we noticed cracks in the bottom a few days later. If we would've resisted the temptation [and just screwed the bolts with our hands] we would've been fine. This time around we bought some plastic toilet shims in case we get the rocking back and forth that caused us to re-tighten them in the first place.
Not only that but when we went to replace the toilet in our master bathroom we learned the hard way about measuring. And assuming. And I so knew better. I knew. But ... I assumed. It was a shameful day for me.
Ya see, you're supposed to measure from the wall to the middle of the hole [or to the floor bolt if the toilet is in place]. Apparently, in full bathrooms it's almost always a 12 inch rough-in but for some odd reason, ours is a 10 inch rough-in. So our standard 12 inch toilet did not fit. I was luckily [and I'm stretching the meaning of that word] able to use the base in the other bathroom where it had cracked but it was a big bummer.
A 10 inch rough-in is something that is special order so we ended up looking online. We ordered it and it took about a week but unfortunately it's shipped in multiple packages. So we have the bowl and are waiting for the rest.
Something that's kept me happy in the mean time is this tiny little sign. I found it here for a mere $7. I used liquid gold to paint the top of it and placed it above our bathroom door. It's an iPhone photo but it really captures the contrast of that wall color with gold. I'll never get sick of it! The bathroom area that has the vanity will have the same dark color.
