It’s Landee from Landee See Landee Do. Today I’d like to talk about some ugly things. Door stops! They are things we all have in our homes and we allow them to reside there, no questions asked. And we don’t have just one… we have them everywhere we look! Around every corner!
These hideous beasts are these “boing boing” doorstops (official name from here on out).
Ug. They do have one redeeming quality though. Once discovered, they have the ability to keep a scooting/crawling baby entertained for a good 10 minutes (which is 2 hours in adult time). But, other than that, these brassy coiled atrocities are nothing but eyesores.
Today, we shall fix that.
I admit I do have an ulterior motive behind this project. I’ve been needing to replace or move my “boing boing” in my entry way since the genius who installed it had some miscalculations.
See how the front door easily glides right past it?
I didn’t discover this, however, until I hung a mirror behind the door a couple of years ago.
Someone is lucky that I want to refinish that mirror anyway.
Anyway, so I’ve been needing to do something about this situation for quite some time. And what I came up with was easy as pie and took mere minutes!
