Funky Door Handle for Sale

From Janelle:

I tried but I just couldn’t live with it.  The designer presented the funky front door pull with a few others and I selected it but after the hole drilling fiasco I just couldn’t live with the crooked thing.  Metalworker Extraordinaire Tom fabricated a new one utilizing the same holes and we all agreed that the squiggle just didn’t go with our hard edged style.  Yes, Laura, I realize that it mirrors our squiggly bedposts but remember, the bedroom furniture is from the 90’s and it will be gone; someday.

The floors should be finished Tuesday.  We are anxiously awaiting the removal of plastic coverings but the bare areas that we have seen are gorgeous.  The agonizing hours spent choosing wood seems to have paid off and so far I’m really happy with the color and grain.

Appliances were scheduled for delivery last week but the scaffolding remains in the entry way and the opening is too small.  The stucco guys are to return on Monday but so far they have been the least reliable of all the trades.

The Andy Warhol TV/guestroom and bathroom doors will be hung on Monday.  FINALLY!!  They could have been installed without the floors but waiting allows for hanging at just the perfect height.  Our guests will actually have some privacy.  We are pushing to get the HUDDLE bed/couch frame back from the chrome shop by Tuesday so it is ready for my niece on Wednesday.  Other friends will be arriving on Friday so right now it is a toss up on which guest will be the first to christen the HUDDLE bed.  The blow up mattress covered in construction dust because it was never put away properly may get one more spin.

From Lewis:

FINALLY!!!  I can say it “I TOLD YOU SO” I reluctantly went with the door handle but I did not like it. I’m glad Janelle was the one that goofed up that installation. And I had to watch it happen. Luckily Tom to the rescue.  Looks like things will look very different around here next week.

    Yes! Love that new door handle! Definitely better. Good work (even if the workers call you names behind your back).

  2. Yes, definitely better. Ha, you know they do! Actually, they say I’m reasonable. Picky but reasonable and the floor guy calls me a “Peach”. 🙂

    I agree Janelle the squiggle door handle was just way too soft for your door. Really like the one you picked!!!

  4. Yes, we all agree, it just wasn’t a good fit. Oh, well, gaffe corrected and we are movin’ on! Thanks!!
