Knob !

I've been reading a lot about the store Anthropologie and decided to stop and see what the rave is all about.  It is a pretty neat store with lots of knick-knacks for the home and it has clothes as well.  I really didn't have anything in mind to purchase when I went in the store, but I came out with this pretty little thing.

There is a door knob on our linen closet upstairs that keeps falling off.  I planned on fixing it, but when I saw the door knob at Anthropologie, I figured I'd just replace it.  We plan to paint the upstairs hallway and stairway a lighter yellow and I already have two teal plates lined up to hang in the hallway.  So when I saw the knob, it was a no brainer.

Here's the door before:

I just pulled off the knob and unscrewed the rest from behind the door.  I'm not sure what this part is called, but it's what the knob was falling off from attached to.  

It was quite simple to put the new knob on.  I just put it through the hole and twisted the nut on it to secure it.

Looks good and I'm pleased with the results.  Now I can open our linen closet without the knob falling off.

What simple adjustment have you made to your home?

Now you can Do It Yourself Too!



  1. What a cute little difference. I have been wanting to upgrade the plain ol' white knobs I have on my laundry room closet doors. I just need to find the right knobs to 'set them off'. Thanks for sharing!

A Tisket. A Tasket. A Wall Full of Baskets

Soo...after my new found obsession with Pinterest started, I came across this wonderful idea for small bathroom storage . Our upstairs "guest" bathroom doesn't have a lot of storage space, our sink is narrow with little cabinet space, and I'm not very in to the shelf/cabinet over the toilet idea.  So I was thrilled when I saw this picture.  I love baskets because they are a versatile way to store anything and they look good doing it.  I was also excited because the current towel bar over the toilet was not centered, which really bothered me, so now I had an excuse to take it down.   For the project: Tools Needed: Screw Driver Drill Putty knife (if needed) Paint roller (if needed) Paint tray (if needed) Level Measuring tape Pencil Materials Needed:   Towel Bars Baskets Something to attach baskets to bar - I used craft ribbon Spackling (if needed) Sand paper (if needed) Self-adhesive drywall joint tape (if needed) Primer and P

Fallin' For Tulle Wreaths

Pinterest is at it again.  While browsing Pinterest during my daily hourly look through, I found this pretty fall wreath : Since it is on Etsy, I started to look for an online tutorial on how to make a tulle wreath.  I've never seen one before, so I wasn't sure where to start.  Google makes searching for things so easy and I quickly found this  tutorial.  It was very helpful. I got most of my materials at a store called WOW Outlets in Pennsylvania while visiting my family (yes, another trip to PA).  The foam ring is 11" .  I originally started with a 12" ring, but felt it was too big.  I had almost the whole wreath covered with tulle, didn't like it, and took it apart for the smaller ring. I got some of the tulle at the same store, some at the $1.00 section in JoAnn's, and had some cut from a bolt at JoAnn's.  I also purchased some gold ribbon as well. The flower, leaves, and scarecrow are all from fall decorations I had lying around the ho

Spring Hanging Towels

I just wanted to share what I started over Easter break and finished yesterday in between church, hunting for Easter baskets, and eating tons of food.  My Gram's birthday and my godmother's birthday is in April, so I told them I'd make an Easter hanging towel for them.  I had four towels, so I was able to make 8 all together.  Only five are shown: Since I last made the shamrock one, I did find out that I can make a buttonhole with my sewing machine.  However, I can't find the manual so I still don't know how to use it.  So I'm still sewing snaps on the towels like I did  here .  I did figure out that I can sew the button on at the same time as the snap, so that made it MUCH easier than the first time I did it.  I actually like the snaps and will probably keep with it even if when I do figure out how to use it. I gave all of them away as gifts, except for one.  I think they turned out just springy :) I hope that you all had a blessed Easter !
