    Ok now the real question is will my landlord get pissed off if I change the faucet? I’ve seen some really nice ones and this video shows its easy to do! If I’m doing the buying and don’t mess up, I cant see why it should be a problem right?

    This is great. As a woman I feel that I can do this. Grab a girlfriend, promise her lunch and do some home improvement. Power to the Handywoman!
