ksl classifieds

I’ve been spending some serious time on KSL classified’s website, searching for some budget opportunities on this basement project. It’s a love/hate relationship with me and the classifieds. There are so many great deals out there if you are willing to search and then drive to pick them up. I just picked up a great double, deep sink for the craft/sewing room, with all the hardware included for $30. I was super stoked about some cabinets for the same room, but when I went to pick them up I found they had been in an doctors office and weren’t even close to standard cupboard height. Darn it!  Here are a few ads that I’ve come across that made me laugh, scratch my head or want to remodel my whole house.
“I bought this and my wife does not like it.”
Really?? Why, I can’t believe she wasn’t jumping with joy when you brought this sink home dude. 

“This is for a red Kohler birthday bath tub–it is BEAUTIFUL!!! It is in need of some polish and a good clean, but would look so classy in a bathroom. It does have some scratches, most of which would be covered by the feet when they are attached, and is missing one small piece on the handle that I’m sure could be replaced…It includes all the plumbing needed for installation. It retails for around $7000! I’m only getting rid of it because my husband is sick of moving it around waiting for us to build a house for it. Call, text or email if interested.”
Classy?? You mean like, “I drive a Corvette” classy, or mirrors on the bedroom ceiling classy?  I think these two sellers need to team up and design a bathroom together.

“I have five 10′ x 14′ Aluminum Full Glass doors. Each door comes with an electric key operated door opener. Doors are in excellent condition. Asking $1,000 per door, or best offer!”
OK, now I’m being serious… quickly help me think- where can I put these doors? I love them so much, can’t I think of somewhere to put them? a pool house, studio, modern dream home, garage for parking a classy Corvette…

Once again, love… ‘can be used for anything’ huh? Do you think my neighbors would care if I half-buried it into a flower bed or better yet, how about just an outdoor bathing spot.

    Well, ya’ know, Noelle, you once did have an outdoor shower. Why not a sky blue outdoor soaker tub?
