REMODELERS COUNCIL: TIPS FROM THE PRO'S

    Bucket Picture 1

    5 Gallon buckets have their uses but usually are too big and deep for mixing and spreading tile thinset mortar or other materials, paint, cleaners etc.   Here is a way to make the bucket much more useful and versatile by cutting it down to a more useful size.





    Bucket Picture 2

    Take a measurement of the height of bucket.  This bucket is 15”.  Divide in half 7 1/2” and add 1” from bottom.  Make a line with a marker 8 1/2”  up from bottom around bucket.

    Cut the bucket in half with any kind of saw.  It will not chip.





    Bucket Picture 4

    Place the bottom half inside the top half.

    Pull up on the handle.  It will not fall through not matter what weight you put in it.

    Now you have a smaller depth bucket that is more usable!

    When you put it down the bucket will release to the cut down size.   Much easier when working on the floor and not having to dig deep in a bucket. Plus a more workable size.

    “When considering a kitchen renovation, discuss with your family when the most ideal time would be during the year.  Is it during a school break vacation or Holiday that you will be gone for a week or two? Or Summertime, so that you can use your grill as much as possible?  A renovation is disruptive- and it isn’t a quick fix.  There are many variables involved…   After 11 years of designing, I personally experienced this myself! My advice? Have a plan in place for where you will wash your dishes, and relocate small (and some big) appliances temporarily for your family to use as you wait for your new kitchen.” -Ali White; Kitchens by Design
