Never Underestimate a Small DIYer Driving a Small Car and Friday Favorites Link Party Week 541

I got a text that our new shower doors for our upcoming bathroom remodel are ready for pickup. Happily I emptied the trunk of our car, put the back seat down and zipped off to experience contact free pickup.

Home Depot guy comes out with my order (these exact shower doors swoon!) (Disclosure: I am including affiliate links for your convenience,) looks at my Ford Focus hatchback, and said it wouldn't fit.

Oh yeah? Well, I say never never underestimate a small woman in a small car who really hates her shower doors and will move Heaven and Earth to transport the new one to her house.

Especially when she has a long history of transporting oversize color guard props in tiny cars - sometimes across state lines.

My view from the passenger seat transporting 20 ft streamer flag poles in a Ford Focus sedan. They run diagonally from the end of the trunk to the end of the dashboard but they fit! (Never doubt me husband. Ever.)
 
If I can cram those into a Focus sedan, a Focus hatchback is cake!

They. Fit. Just barely. But they fit!
 I didn't take a passenger with me because I figured I'd have to push/tilt the passenger seat forward as far as it would go. The driver's seat wasn't an issue. I'm so short I have to drive with the seat as close to the steering wheel as possible to reach the pedals - really.


I showed you my project! Now you show me yours!

Time to link up your fantastic and creative craft and DIY projects, recipes, and ideas!

I had to laugh at this post. I worked/had a shop, in an Antique Mall, and we invariably had to figure out how to get impulse purchases into people's cars. Some people are 'spatially' challenged, they just can't visualize anything in 2 dimensions...great post. And yes necessity and passion is required! From FFavs Sandi
