Installing new door handles :)

Good Morning!  Hope everyone had a great Halloween, I celebrated more this year than ever. So many parties. I have to say Halloween parties are the most fun everyone is looking to have a good time. I still cant get the smell of bonfire out of my hair!

Anyway.. I have a small project that I finally got accomplished this week and I wanted to share it. I like small projects that make a big impact as I have said many times before.

My husband and I love our house, really we do but we don't plan on spending to many more years in this house. This was our first house, a project in and of itself. So little things to update, I think, will really go a long way when we are ready to sell.

I was searching online and came across these and I fell in love. Well maybe not love, but I was so exited to get them and they are a great price.

OMGGGGGGGGGGGGG this is so fugly!!!

They were super easy to install, here's how I did it...

1. Remove the screws from the middle part of the door.

2. Pop off the cover (if you have one) and

3. Push the little tab on the side and pull the knob off. Then you can get to the screws. :)
4. Unscrew the handle

5. Remove one side, then pull the other part out and pull out the middle.

And then... repeat these steps in the opposite order.  Put in the middle, screw it in, put in functioning part, then the other side, screw that in...
One side note, with these lever handle sets there was no left or right handed option. You simply flipped it up-side-down
Then your done and it looks much better then those ugly brass handles.


Its just adds a little somthin to all the rooms... :)

Sorry about the blue cup :) my dogs love water in here, I don't get it!

Hope you have a great day, and please join if you like reading my posts!

Ok, you made it sound simple. Because I challenged in this particular area, I'm going to read it over another 15x's and then perhaps give it a shot. You have a beautiful home. Thanks for sharing.
