Do you see that light switch to the left of my mixer? Why didn't I think of putting in a regular outlet there? That way, I could use that space appropriately and not have to lug my mixer elsewhere to plug it in. See, the thing is, that space to the left of the sink wasn't ever that big. I didn't have a dishwasher before so that area was really tiny. Actually it's where we had our dish rack (is that what it's called? the thing that you put your wet dishes in). So when I plopped the mixer up there after everything was done, it was the perfect spot! Except.no.outlet. Again, dang it! It bugged me for a while, so I mentioned it to Mitch. And check out what he did last night! I'm so excited!! (please excuse the smudge marks--didn't notice them until this pic:/)
Sha-BANG! Do you see that?? Genius! The best of both worlds right there.
So now I don't have to carry that beast over to the island every time I bake. Just plug that puppy in and go.
Mitch said the instructions that came with the switch weren't that helpful so he looked on youtube and found a video that explained everything so easily. So, check it out if you want/need something like this done.
And just like that, all is calm, all is bright in the Hertzler household once again. I just hope when our reno is done, I won't look back and wish we would have done something differently. On second thought, we'll have to do something with all that free time, right?
