Thank you! I like bronze too so I will check those out. (ETA: ha! Just checked the link and saw that I actually ordered one in size 2"x12" in 2020 for the first-floor bathroom. Great minds think alike! )

You just reminded me that last year I bought this bed frame on amazon for the master bedroom: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B017YETH8K/ . It is 18" high so has about 17.5" of storage space (i.e. height) underneath -- room for a LOT of stuff! I liked it so much that when I started thinking about re-doing my guest room, I bought one for that too in full size.

I was able to get rid of both of the box springs, as the new bed frames don't need them.

The only downside is that if you want to attach a headboard, you may have to drill new holes in it as many if not most headboards still only have holes drilled in the bottom 10-12" as the manufacturers assume that most people are still using box springs. The good news is that drilling holes is easy.

LOVE Sterilite sooo reasonable compared to rubber maid counter-parts. I just got a set of 10 stacking totes for my garage shelves to hold all those miscellaneous do-dads and parts.

Just bought a tin sign to go in my remodeled first-floor bathroom ... this is typically the bathroom used by guests so I decided to have fun with it: it has a kitty theme ([unfinished] thread about the remodel here -- I will finish it one of these days!: https://www.city-data.com/forum/home...t-color-s.html ) ...



The sign was so silly I couldn't resist! It makes me laugh every time I see it in my amazon orders ... it's due to arrive on Thursday and I expect it will make me laugh when I hang it up too!

===

ETA: the kitty in the tin sign looks like my Chloe ...



I think that's why it makes me laugh!

Haha! I have a tuxedo kitty that looks like the one in the picture. Only mine would be shredding the toilet paper

I just bought a couple of these. The outlets in my house are so difficult to access. I wish I'd thought to have them raised up higher on the walls when I had the electrician here updating everything before I moved in. A few more wire-molds would not have bothered me meant I didn't have to lie face down on the floor to reach an outlet. I didn't think of it.

But I didn't know they made power strips in a tower, so I am THRILLED. I don't need ALL those plug spots, but they are sturdy and heavy and stay upright where I place them. You can get really long cords or 6 foot (I got the 6 foot ones) I bought two, so far I've only put one to use, not sure yet where I want the other.

I actually have one that is VERY similar to the one you showed -- it cost $33 on amazon (looks like it's now a dollar cheaper; it's this one: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PT3M78R/ ). I use it in my home office closet for my media-server PC; it's very nice to have so many outlets as I also have my laptop, a small turntable, a bunch of lights, and misc. other things connected to it. Very handy!

catmoms21, great minds think alike!

I just bought for the outdoors:

For the same reasons. My outdoor plugs are so difficult to access that I hate having to use any of my electric-powered yard equipment. I got a couple of these and a couple of decorative storage pots. Now my extension cords are always plugged in and immediately accessible.
(shucks, now no more excuses for not doing my leaf blowing)...

Wow those plug molds ( not sure if that is the right term?) are game changers. For real.
It used to be that where the outlets were located determined decorating and where you could locate or use things. This is wonderful. We have our laptops and phone chargers and lights all available to use where we sit.

Just bought a Keurig K Cafe Coffee, Latte, and Cappuccino maker. OMG - I love it!

We had a regular Keurig forever. It was one of the old original ones, so probably 10 years old. Loved it. Well, it finally died, so I went to buy a new one. At the store, I was lured in by the fancy Keurig model with the milk frother, and I bought it. It is wonderful! Makes coffee like the old one, but with more size options and a "strong" option. But it also froths milk like a champ and with very little effort for a perfect cappuccino and heats milk almost instantly for a latte. Totally worth the splurge.

This light is just so cute and provides a lot of light. I bought it for a 2 nd bathroom at a rental we own. We are redoing the bathroom.
