I got a new kitchen faucet. It was sort of an impulse buy, but sort of not. I’ve been on the lookout for a new faucet because my old one was unstable.
I was at Lowe’s the other day, and saw a faucet that I liked. I needed a one-hole faucet (a rare item), and I needed something that extended far over the sink. Also on my list was the “oil rubbed bronze” look to match my cabinet handles, and something that fit with my kitchen’s traditional look.
Here it is:
But here’s the problem: it wobbles a little. I tried to make it more solid, but I couldn’t get a wrench around the tightening nut underneath. I think the wobble might even be in the design: where the faucet comes in contact with the sink there’s a rubber washer. Maybe that makes it wobble.
The wobbling reminds me of an old movie called Crazy People, where people from an asylum write ads for an agency. Their ads are unconventional, but persuasive. The one that I always remember is “Volvo: Boxy but good.” HERE is the clip. Warning: It has some bad language in it.
