X2, for the most part.

That definitely makes a big difference. Job well done.

My local Lowes carries just 2 versions of the peel-n-stick tile - neither of which I cared for. Guess I'll have to see what they've got online.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Five minute sub wire!

Added sound bar to new big screen - hardwire sub came with it and I kept putting off installing it (typical TV in middle on bath wall.) No real good place to hid it except up front and running wire front to back not fun. Finally figured out component video cable had unused yellow wire with RCA connectors! Put female RCA connector on sub wire at sound bar and on sub wire at speaker. Plugged ends into yellow wire at TV and in front video cabinet, tested and done. Now sub speaker box resides under dash on floor with wire hanging from overhead cabinet to floor. Eventually will run perm wire thru windshield column and mount sub box high off floor. Sounds great.

OH, Thank You.
I feel like such a moron. I bought a roll around, four drawer, Island cart, the top of which matches up to the top of the kitchen counter top. I never thought of the pull out cutting board like in every kitchen I've ever seen.

Pull out cutting board

I did one for my Revolution. It's about 11" wide and pulls out 24"! A lot longer than the factory ones. I made it out the matching Corian.

Here is an easy one! I purchased 2 - 12' LED rope strands from Lowes. I attached them to the top back side of the slide surround moldings. I was able to use a short extension cord for one side and plug into an outlet on the end of the slide. The left side needs a bit of wire routing to make it look factory and I will do that when I return home. Here are the before and after pics. It's a nice soft light and the DW loves it. Now she wants a strand in the bedroom.

I like that idea, Dave. Is it much hassle to remove the ropelights when it's time to put the slide in?
