Introduction: "Home-hardware": or Housewares From Hardware

About: I'm an electrician by trade. I love to fix things, make things and imagine a better world.

While renovating my laundry room, I wanted to keep the character and charm of the old taps and shut-offs, without using old (poorly functioning) plumbing.  I ended up re-purposing them to serve as coat hooks and door pulls (and wound up saving some money in the process).
