Ah, it's two.
Had to peeksey at the package.
Soooo today's post is about stools!
NO! Not *that* kind!
I'll leave *that* kind up to other bloggers to bring up.
So I went to WalMart to get some other things & while there, I thought I'd pick up spray paint & primer to redo my old step stool. I have new rubber (no, not *that* kind) feetseys for the old stool (no, not *that* kind). I'll take off the rubber (no, not *that* kind) mat off the stool (no, not *that* kind)& refinish it. I'll get my sander out, sand it, prime it, paint it, make it like new again! Yay! :-)) Big happy face.
Uh oh...:-( Big happy face goners.
Stool (no, not *that kind) is in bad shape.
First, take off the rubber (no, not *that* kind) mat off. It breaks to pieces.
OK, no problem, I'll just buy something new to put over that surface. Should not be hard to find something. Well, ok, this doesn't look good. Not good at all.
But I think, OK, I'll still sand it off, prime it, paint it.
It will be fine.
I flip it over.
OK, it's cracked up. All the way through. OK, take paint back, get money back. No sense in trying to restore this project stool. (no, not *that kind)
So I took paint back to WalMart & bought a new stool! (no, not *that* kind. That kind is free)
OK, so you say new stool (no, not *that* kind) is rather useless? It's no more than a flat brick on the ground?
OK, I'll unfold it then.
Unfortunately, there might be one small problem with new ...step. Whew, now I don't have to type that phrase anymore.
It's only rated for 200 pounds. Not a problem for me, but it could be a problem for friends & others. (ok, so who are the others??...um, I don't know)
Or if I had a sick dog & had to pick it up & carry it inside of the RV. My dogs are big, so their weight plus mine then could be a problem. This sto....step was only $13.00. So I'm debating on keep it? Take it back? Go to Camping World & spend money I really don't have on a better more heavy duty sto....step? Or go to CW just to see what they have first? Maybe that's my best option. Spend the gas $$ to go to CW to check out their stoo...steps.
I'm tempted to keep this one since it folds for other things around the RV. But I also have two smaller step stools that I already use inside of the RV because I can't reach inside of some of my top cabinets.
Wow. Life is hard.
PS, I've heard that if you use those carpet strips over your RV steps, that they too can rust out under them & you don't realize it till it's too late.
I don't use my RV steps because there's "give" to them when you step on them & I don't like that. So I use a st--- instead
