Spiteful Spouts

Before/During
The tub spout in our guest bathroom was showing its age. In the photo above you can see how the metal was eroding from the outlet.

Unloved Light

Before 
Our kitchen had a light over the counter that Chrissy hated. I didn't mind it, so I resisted replacing it. We also couldn't find anything we liked to replace it, so until now, we did nothing.

Crappy Can Lights

Before
We have two recessed lights in our living room. I previously installed LED bulbs in them, but for some reason I left the ugly black and beige shades in them.

Faulty Drip Fitting

Before
One of the fittings in our front yard drip system had a bad habit of coming apart and gushing water for extended periods. I tolerated it for too long because I wasn't sure I could easily find the appropriate fitting, but a recent blowout was the last straw.

I determined some time ago that we needed a tire swing in our back yard, but I was waiting until Hope was old enough to ride it without dying. I'm happy to say, that time has finally come.

Preventing Door Damage

I bought and installed three doorstops because our house didn't have any on certain random doors. Unfortunately, I just found another door that needs one.

Luxurious Latch

Old Latch
I upgraded the latch on our side yard gate from a standard U-style (upon which a rivet previously failed and I had to repair with stainless steel hardware) to a fancy self latching unit, which was generously given to me by my dad.
