A few days ago the sliding door to the "kid's bathroom" finally crashed which began a discussion on what to do next: Do we put up a new door or just put up a sturdy curtain? We decided on the curtain.
Today I went to the hardware store to find an appropriately sized tension rod. Immediately a nice man saw the dilemma on my face and led me to the right department. He had some bad news: Unfortunately, all of the heavy duty tension rods begin at 33 inches while our door is a measly 29.5 inches. I looked at the worker at the hardware store and said well there's only one thing to do - I guess I'll have to widen the door. The worker did not realize I was being a wise guy, began pleading with me not to do that. I relented and said well if you say so I'll just buy one of the smaller light duty tension rods.
