I wish I could wave my magic wand (wait - I don't have one) and instantly get rid of:
|Gold outlet plates and builder-grade yellowish outlets - ick|
Instead, slowly and steadily, every time we are at Lowe's we spend another $5 to change one for a white version. Slow and steady. . .a few hundred dollars later, we should be all un-golded. A few hundred dollars after that we should be white-outlet-ed.
Anything that drives you crazy in your house? Anything cost way more than it should because many little things add up to one big expense? Happy reno-ing!
