Why yes, the cabinets over the dinette and the toilet.

I got some single flatware drawer trays from Target or Wally and cable-tied them between the two Scamp supports so they were doing double duty. I put my often-used stuf, like spoons, pocket knife, pens, etc., in the trays -- I can reach them while standing or in my bed across the back.
Hey Pete, I would love to see this, got photos?

Nice job with the Tiki torches! Looks classy!

Nice refit there Peter, MUCH better then the original.
You could likely go to many hardware stores, or Stair and Railing shops, and get some metal spindles too.

I looked at the stair spindles at Home Depot. They cost less than the tiki torches and have a similar cage-looking section in the middle, but their main shaft is twisted square stock, and I preferred the look of the round shaft of the Tiki Torches. The spindles from the specialty stores would have worked, but cost more than $10 each tiki torches.

Just finished the curb/sink-side counter and upper cabinet support. We upgraded our sink to a double-bowl unit, something Lynne's wanted for a long time!

Very pretty!

The only thing I'd wonder is if the open design might bend in it's "support" role. I don't know what sort of pressure they can take vs what sort of load that part really takes though.

Just no denying it looks much better than the original twisted stock look.

The main thing the supports do right now is hold the weight of the cabinets up and stop the shell from sagging . . . that's not much weight at all. The only other thing that the supports might have to bear is the weight of a rooftop A/C (under 100 lbs), but that additional weight is borne by both the cabinet/roof supports and the floor-to-ceiling bathroom enclosure and opposing curb-side cabinet.

All-in-all there's just not a lot of weight those supports need to worry about. My cute little replacements will do the job and prevent the roof will sag and stress cracking that occurs when they've been removed.

I LOVE the look of the new supports.

Now.... how can we integrate some LED lighting into them. (just kidding ... I think)
So there I was, just minding my own business and doing my grocery shopping when I came across these little LED tea candles for just $0.50 each. I couldn't help but think of Carol Ann and her request . . .
