    Helping friends design a new kitchen in a trailer

    Eddie, that is a good idea. We have some shelves in mom's bathroom that she eventually wants to have faced and have doors put on. I haven't uploaded the pics yet, but I got some photos & friend had me take a picture of a dish rag that is her color inspiration. I think she wants the 50s diner...

    What did you do today?

    Dental work went ok. Someone almost ran into the back of me at a red light on the way in. I was behind a big truck and slowed gradually as we got to the light. Person behind me wasn't paying attention & slammed on their brakes. I also got stuck waiting on a funeral procession. I wonder who died...

    LOL. She said she could do shelves on the walls. I still think she should get at least one wall cabinet to hang a range hood from. She's lived in poverty her whole life so she's not used to having much stuff.

    Soony, yeah. I figured having the fridge on the end would help to keep that from being a problem. I'm thinking a 30"x18" cabinet above the stove could hold a range hood. But I'm struggling with upper cabinet placements. I don't like the way it looks with a 36" in the corner and two 30"x18s above...

    Helping friends design a new kitchen in a trailer

    Thanks, Soony. We are still trying to figure out the whole layout before deciding on any upper cabinets. She said she wanted the sink more to the right (when facing the wall) because she is left-handed and wants more prep space to the left. So, I suggested having the base cabinets to the left of...

    Helping friends design a new kitchen in a trailer

    Some of you may remember my thread about a friend's house burning & I briefly mentioned he stayed with some friends who had planned to move in with him temporarily. Well, those friends had moved down near Lake Charles & got a home but it was destroyed by hurricanes. They had to move back in to...

    What did you do today?

    Shan, I'm sorry about your back pain. I hope you can get some relief. You've done more than I have this morning. I'm just trying to wake myself up. I didn't sleep well because some kitty kitties decided they wanted to eat before the sun came up & kept tapping my face & trying to get me to wake...

    What did you do today?

    Shan, my mom drinks a lot of fluids, so it's odd. But, I think she doesn't get enough fiber in her diet. My friend found my phone while putting up the mount for my monitor. I need to clean the cat fur off my walls. LOL. There are spider webs that caught cat fur. I keep meaning to do it, but...

    What did you do today?

    I found out there is a recycling place for RX bottles in DeRidder but it's an hour away. Not really worth the drive. My sister has a big recycling dump not far from where she lives. There are bins marked for plastic and some for wood & some for metal. We have nothing like that around here. Since...

    What did you do today?

    I think the first step is for me to get the kitchen cleaned up enough that I can walk around and reach things. Right now there is a huge pile of stuff on the floor. My brother literally chucked the toaster on the floor when he set up the air fryer. I keep setting it on the counter and it gets...

    Best friend's house burned on Easter five years ago

    He never plans to sell. They want to keep the house in the family. Bit of a snag because the price of the cabinets went way up. The cabinets that were $87 are now $105. The pantry cabinet he wants is out of stock and has nearly doubled in price. So he'll have to save up even more $. If that's...

    What did you do today?

    I'll have to see if I can find coconut oil to try oil pulling. I completely forgot about it for some reason. CRS about new info sometimes. LOL. I used to have a great memory. There are still some obscure things I remember but a lot is now a blank. I'm going to see my dentist again on the 18th...

    What did you do today?

    Shan, I'm glad you made it through the procedure OK. Do they numb you for it? I had a friend who they didn't numb first when they went to do it and she complained a lot. Can't really blame her. It's not something I would want done. I'm the right age for it but they are too expensive & even if...

    Best friend's house burned on Easter five years ago

    Eddie, apparently chunks of the window are missing, glass is broken, and it's a mess. My friend does not want to have a window there. He plans to remove the glass, board it up on the outside, (I will probably paint it), & then he will drywall over the inside. I thought it would be nice to have a...
