comment wire two lights with two 3 way switches
If I were you I would edit this question to include a sketch of the circuit. A well-cropped photo or two might help too.

comment How to deal with a pop up drain install when nut doesn't sit flush with bottom of the sink?
Links for others new to Sugru and Polymorph. I've not used Sugru but people have used it for gaskets in plumbing. I've used Polymorph to make wrenches and replacements for broken parts.

comment How do I remove/replace these window screens?
If you raise the lower pane to it's maximum extent, then pull out the metal levers on the flyscreen frame, doesn't the flyscreen frame easily separate inwards?

comment How to deal with a pop up drain install when nut doesn't sit flush with bottom of the sink?
I wonder if you could use Sugru to make a lop-sided rubber gasket in-place, between the nut and sink. If I needed to be sure it was removable I'd try PTFE tape on the threads and masking tape on the underside of the bowl and practice on some old fittings. For something harder I'd consider Polymorph but that softens at only 50C or so.
