I tackled the sliding door not closing all the way today. There is a round fitting that goes thru the holes at the top of the door. The fitting and screw on the opposite side hold the sliding wheel bracket that the door hangs from. I removed the screw on the bedroom side, then carefully knocked the fitting back in from the other side. I had to wedge the door in a raised position so the bracket metal was not in the way. I bet this all works easily if you do it in a different order but I did not want to take the whole thing apart.
It looks like maybe that screw has been replaced with one with a slightly smaller head that allowed it to push thru to the other side, creating a “stop” that kept door from closing.
Last night I used my endoscope camera (amazon) to try to find the missing running light wiring. No luck there. I did spy what appeared to be some burnt insulation on the neutral wire to the bedroom light fixture. My electrician is going to swing by and do some testing to see if there is an immediate concern. I’d like to rewire one day, but I don’t think that is a task I want to take on myself. I am considering installing a new breaker box and a couple of grounded outlets tho. They might be installed totally separate from the existing 15 amp service.
I’m a bit of a collector. Ok perhaps even bordering on hoarder. One of the things I’ve saved for decades is this set of bookends which I had stored in a closet. I think they look perfect on the front shelf! I’ve always loved their rustic deco lines.
I took the curtains down. Tho I appreciated their cute “atomic” print the pastel colors just won’t work with the sofa. I’ll save them in case I ever want to switch it up. I like the simple look tho – and wonder what window treatment will be best to preserve the feel. Wood blinds perhaps? Metal?
ok now I’m just going to load this post up with a bunch of glamour shots. Enjoy!
