We installed the new toilet seat this evening. By "we" I mean my daughter and I. Nothing like an eager four year old to help crawl around behind a toilet, even if it took some coaching on which direction to thread the nuts. I think the whole room looks much classier with the cheap wood seat gone. The bolts on it were rusted and nasty. I ended up just breaking off the plastic nuts and banging it out with a hammer. We then had to clean the crud around the bolt holes since the new hardware was a bit smaller in diameter. A little Bar Keeper's Friend and it was good to go. Oh, and the old seat went out in the trash - no fancy picture frame craft projects or anything else with it. Some things just shouldn't be recycled.
