We have this little nook in our kitchen. It has shelves above it that store our everyday plates and cups and glasses and platters. We use it constantly. The counter used to become a catch all, getting out of control with the paperwork of everyday life. I’ve been working hard to keep it mostly clear since we re-did the countertops.
Anyway…the shelves. They had these thick sliding glass doors, probably original with the house. Old and sturdy. The tracking was off, and they were always jammed. Every time I went to put something in there or take it out, they would not open and it was just this aggravation every single day. Lately, I’ve had the idea to take the doors off. I’d glance at the cabinet wistfully, think about getting rid of those damn doors, then I’d think….I’d probably have to hire a handyman. How could I possibly do it? Inertia would set in. Sigh.
But today, I actually went over and investigated, and I was easily able to lift both glass panels (and man are they heavy)out. It took about twenty seconds. And now it’s free and easy access to the shelves I use constantly. It is a breath of fresh air!
And I wonder how many other problems I put up with, when the solution is so easy. So within my means?
