Don’t Do This When OSHA Is Looking

October 5, 2021

The ceilings in this powder room were about 10′ high, and it was difficult for me to reach the areas high up over the 20″ deep vanity top. So I got a little creative.

Usually, the 5 gallon bucket is high enough. But today I had to add a sturdy box on top.

There was enough room on the vanity top to hold the bucket securely, without toppling over the edge or into the sink.

Note that I used this get-up for balance only, and only placed one foot on it. The other foot stayed safely planted on the ladder. I never set my full weight on the contraption.

I like to put non-slip material under the bucket, but found that it was leaving marks on countertops, so hence the bucket on the bare granite.
