As we were working on the master closet over the weekend we were stalled by not having enough screws to put the second base together.
So yesterday I made a list of what we need and checked out both the Home Depot and Lowes websites to see which would have more of the items.
Turns out Lowes was the place. I started in the gardening section because Charlie wanted a new watering wand. I also bought two packages of Italian White sunflowers to be planted alongside my Lemon Queen variety some of which Charlie planted last week.
Then I moved to the closet section where there was a good selection of closet poles. I decided to buy the long, sturdy brushed metal poles instead of the more lightweight telescoping ones. I think we can get two sections per long pole.
I also purchased matching end brackets.
While looking for 3″-long screws to put the base of the closet together I went down the knobs aisle and purchased 4 faceted crystal-like ball knobs for the two cabinets in the closet and the backs of the closet doors.
The backs of the doors need a knob because if you close yourself in the closet it’s difficult to open the door from the back. Since I don’t want a screwhead to show from the right side of the door I bought hanger bolts which will go into the knob and then screw into the wood without going through to the other side.
I also bought a box of 3-inch screws.
Finally I took the can of paint I was using for the closet interior which was marked with a small Lowes logo that was all I could see on the can, everything else had been obliterated by dripping paint. I would have had enough to finish the project except over the weekend a large wind carried a piece of Styrofoam across the yard and knocked over my can. A very helpful paint counter representative found exactly the color and type of paint that was in the original can.
I also picked up some 6″
foam fuzzy small roller sleeves. So I had a very beneficial shopping trip at Lowes.
How do you decide where to shop?
