Hidden for so long behind a faux-wall, I didn't even know it was there for a whole month!
Isn't it cute? Little pink-painted, cast-iron thing... too bad it was right where I wanted to put some cabinetry.
So what did I do? I called a craigslist handyman, of course!
Evidently he didn't understand when I told him that the pipe should be UNDERNEATH the top of the base cabinetry.
And this is what I got.
So then what?
(Poor little pipe.)
I called a real plumber. Nine hundred dollars later, I got this:
Look, how sweet! Snug as a bug, inside the wall where it belongs. Too bad I have to patch that gaping-ass hole now.
Oh, not to mention dealing with a couple of other casualties in the war on bad-pipery:
Just a little soldering-fire to break in the new cabinets...
And I love this one.
"Oops, is there another room on the other side of this wall?"
