Washington Weather?

So, here we are, end of August, with almost every day hitting over 80 degrees. I actually decided a couple weeks ago to look up the monthly weather report and looked ahead to see how long this sunny weather is supposed to last. Well, I discovered the beginning of November is when we should be seeing the last of the sunny days, with a handful of days in between now and then where it rains. But look at today(Friday), it is supposed to be warm and its currently raining. Washington weather definitely confuses me most days and one of those days is today. With all this sunshine you may be thinking about an outside project or an addition. Give us a call so we can chat 425-224-2004

Classic Remodeling NW Inc. is adding more projects to our schedule. We are currently booked through winter of this year but can still take on more projects.

5 Suprising Reasons Your Bathroom Awlays Ends Up a Mess

[ Jennifer Kelly  Geddes]

It’s as inevitable as the coming of winter: Despite our best intentions toward organization and cleanliness, most of us wind up with bathrooms that embody chaos-a riot of hair products, creams and lotions, magazines, and cleaning supplies everywhere you look.

But why? Organizing the look should be a no-brainer since most of us have drawers and (maybe) a linen closet to hold all of our stuff.

And yet, this room contains myriad organizing hot spots, even for the experts who should know better. 

Here’s what can go wrong, organizationally-and how to fix each fast. 

A Pile of Hotel Freebies

Who can resist those tiny rosemary mint shampoos from Aveda? You take them all and even ask housekeeping for a few more.

Jamie Novak, author of “Keep This, Toss That,” admits to being a toiletry hoarder, which makes keeping them in line next to impossible. “They are so cute-and the hotel wanted me to take them, right? 

The Fix: Think of all the plastic in the ocean! These one-use lotion bottles aren’t helping mother nature. If the guilt angle doesn’t work, at least promise yourself to use up the ones you have, even taking one hotel’s offerings with you the next time you travel so you’re not tempted to cart home new ones and perpetuate the cycle. 

Old Makeup

Novak’s main bathroom blind spot is her vanity drawer, which contains “a favorite lip gloss with one application left because they don’t make it anymore and the ‘good’ hand cream that I’m saving because it cost so much more money.”

Also cluttering her space: dozens of hair elastics and a jar of fancy bath salts “that are so old, they’re clumped together.”

The Fix: Weigh the sink cost of what you’re saving with the time and energy you lay out moving these things around each time you’re getting ready for work-or trying to relax in the bathtub after a long day.

Make a point of finishing up the foot scrub or special cuticle balm, if only so you can get something new once in a while.

You might also want to install a few simple shelves over the toilet or on the wall opposite the sink. Line up all of these small items or store them in a good-looking set of boxes that’ll hide your supplies as well as double as décor.

Under Sink Chaos

Alas, the Windex and sink scrub are stuck behind all the toilet paper and tissues you stocked up on during the COVID-19 pandemic. Add to this the extra shampoo bottles, hair dryer, and flat iron, and you’ll know why most homeowners and even the pros find this area a big challenge to organize.

The Fix: Order a few sectioned bins or small baskets to coral like items. If you put cleaning supplies in one and small appliances in another, you can easily reach for the container you need and then slide it back into place when you’re finished.

Random Clothing

You strip down in the bathroom to hop in the shower fast, right? Draping your clothes on the sink ledge of the side of the tub is fairly normal, of course, but letting them linger can turn your bath into a cluttered mess.

The Fix: A simple set of hooks, people! Or even a new tiny command-strip options that you can stick on temporarily while you search for better-looking permanent options. This way, at least your bathrobe and sleep shirt will have a place to live, rather than sadly sliding to the floor.

Jumbled Towels and Sheets

If you keep extra towels, sheets, and linens in the bathroom, you know they’re a pain to launder, fold, and put away, which is why lots of linen closets across America look like a cyclone just blew through.

“My biggest cop-out is this area-I put stuff away haphazardly, though I do so with purpose,” says Julie Coraccio of the organizational service Reawaken Your Brilliance. She even admits to “sucking at folding sheets,” though her husband can wrestle a fitted one into submission and he’s a pro at hospital corners.

The Fix: If you don’t have an in-house sheet folder to clean up in your wake, assess your bathroom linen closet with a critical eye. Too many pillowcases and towels can make organizing this hot spot difficult. Move threadbare items to the rag bag for cleaning, or donate old linens to an animal shelter.

Air Fryer Crispy Chicken Sandwich

Total Time

Prep 10 Mins. Total 45 Mins


  • 4 (4-oz) chicken cutlets
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tsp. yellow or honey mustard, plus more for serving
  • 1 tbsp. bread-and-butter pickle juice, plus sliced pickles for serving
  • 1/2 tsp. sweet paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne 
  • 1 c. plain bread crumbs
  • 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 4 lightly toasted potato rolls
  • Lettuce leaves and sliced tomatoes, for serving


  1. Pat chicken dry with paper towels; season all over with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. 
  2. In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs, mustard, pickle juice, paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne until combined. Place bread crumbs and flour in separate shallow bowls.
  3. Dip one chicken cutlet into flour, shaking off any excess. Dip chicken into egg mixture, letting any excess drip off. Coat chicken in bread crumbs, gently pressing to adhere. Transfer breaded cutlet to a plate.
  4. Generously coat an air-fryer basket with cooking spray. Working in batches, arrange 2 cutlets in a single layer in basket. Generously spray chicken with cooking spray until evenly coated. Cook at 400 degrees Fahrenheit , flipping halfway through and generously spraying second side with cooking spray, until breading is golden brown and chicken is just cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool 5 minutes.
  5. Arrange chicken on bottom bun. Layer lettuce, tomato, and pickles over chicken. Spread top bun with mustard and close sandwich.
