A quick tip for improving the look of a hanging cord on an attic door.
Add this to the list of random home projects no one ever thinks about.
Apparently, this week is full of that what with swapping our washer and dryer to prevent door collision a few days ago. And now this…
The other week, when I shared our hallway makeover, a bunch of y’all commented/messaged about our attic string and how it magically disappeared. So ta da! This weird post was born.
For true comparison’s sake, the attic door looked like this at first.
(Some affiliate links are provided below. Full disclosure here.)
So we attached it back in place with a staple gun, gave it a bright white paint job, and then dealt with the ratty string that I’m pretty sure was older than I am.
When I was looking for a solution so we didn’t have to look at a string hanging down all the time, I found this thing called an Attic Ease pull system.
Robert just cut off the string from the inside, pulled it out of the existing hole, and we screwed this little ring in its place.
So. much. better.
To pull it down when we need to access the attic, it comes with this pole with a hook on the end.
We just keep the pole inside of a closet right beside the door when it’s not in use.
It’s the little things sometimes.
And now we don’t have a dirty, old string hanging around our now prettied-up hallway.
What other random gadgets have you found lately that made a difference? Inquiring minds want to know. 😉 People just think of everything now.
