In my determination and quite frankly because of my absolute stubbornness to get this done, I had to come up with something that worked. Ding, the light bulb (or was that the microwave), went on over my head. I wasn't going to be beaten by this piece of metal! I was going to win! So,I decided to saw off the extra metal piece. With what? You may ask. With my jewelry saw that I got when I took soldering 101 at FIT. The other options of either going back to buy pliers at Home Depot or trying to bribe one of the maintenance guys at work to help, were not looking good to me and I didn't want to wait anyway. The jewelry saw worked like a charm! I don't know what you would have done. I'm assuming most people don't have jewelry saws lying around. A regular saw would have been a bit overkill if not ludicrous. Can you imagine if the instructions on the door handle said to get out your jeweler's saw to shorten this piece of metal? So, I'm taking credit for this DIM (Did It Myself) project. It's the little things that make me happy.
My getting chased by a wasp and freaking out sturdy new shiny terrace screen door handle! (I just have to touch up with some white paint).
I know it's not particularly sexy, but I'm in love!!!!
Thanks for Stopping by and Stay tuned for more Creativity and DIM!
