A few more mods to my 5.0

I finally got around to opening up the top step on my 5.0. I followed the lead of others. Some just open it up, others box in the upper area. I chose to box in the upper step.

My local lumber store only had 1 X 8 maple so I had to piece in an extra bit to fill in the spot in front of the wardrobe. The rest was pretty straight forward. Now we have a convent spot for our DeWalt mini shop vac. Love that thing!

Paula likes to can stuff from our garden. So I added a shelf in the cabinet under the stove for canned goods. Put a little molding around the edge to keep cans from sliding out.

Also we have had this very nice kitchen utensil rack that Paula brought with her when we got married. But it never fit anywhere until now. A little tricky to get the bolt through the back corner of the hood but with some persistence I succeeded. In addition I replaced the cheesey 7W hood light with an 18W Xenon bulb. Much better!

Also note the pot holders that Paula made with embedded magnets. Perfect!

Every little step makes the journey better...

Looks great! Someday I hope to tackle the top step.

Can you share the bulb info? I thought I bought the right one but the base doesn’t match so I screwed up somewhere.

Very nice! Did you get extra carpet from ETI or were you able to reuse the existing carpet?

Do you have a link for the light bulb?

Thanks! I planned for the step mod so requested the extra carpet at my orientation.

I found the bulb at Lowe’s so I don’t have a link. It was with their landscape light bulbs. I had the old one with me so I got the correct base.
