I am in the process of organizing my laundry room. To this end I went online and bought a freestanding wire shelving unit. It is designed to fit over the washer and dryer. (Gary saw it and said "OR we could put it in the garage!" because he wants to see me take the scissors to the bedspread again.)
These shelves were made for this washer/dryer. The perfect size. I carefully, carefully measured the washer and dryer, the width from floor to ceiling, the depth, the height, and every dimension of the laundry room. I studied. I ordered. It came.
The second step of the directions: Take a hacksaw and cut the shelves down to the size you want.
THE SHELVES ARE TOO LONG. Because I am expected to cut them down. Because I bought them from Home Depot and of course we all love to hacksaw through wire shelves. Bastards.
So far I've made one cut. I was too timid and I will need to cut more. I want to stalk into the Home Depot with these shelves, fling them onto the table saw, grab the intercom and demand some lackey give me what they sold me.
