Knobs Away!Posted: February 21, 2013
I am happy to be back one month later with another little house update project. This one only takes about 20min and will help you figure out which side to open your kitchen cabinet from. Or maybe that was just a benefit for me.
Here is our kitchen before.
Nice and cozy but about 2x bigger than our apartment kitchen and it has a WINDOW that will look out onto our raised bed garden come this spring. Anyway, I always see home updates on HGTV where they update the cabinet hardware to bring it into this century. Well we didn’t even have hardware to start so I got to have some fun with the drill again. Oh, say “Hi” to Hal and Al, our Roosters on the kitchen mat. Unfortunately these are the only fowl our county will allow to raise.
Line up with cabinet door, figure out which hole you want for your knob, pencil it in, flip to other door, and repeat on all cabinets with same hole.
Now comes the drill. The cabinet tool came with the drill bit appropriate for the screw associated with the knobs we chose, thanks to them being from the same company, but I am sure you can find out the correct bit/screw combo online if need be.
And a close up…
It doesn’t look like much but it really adds something to the blank white kitchen. To make it even better all 25 knobs were only $20 at Home Depot thanks to some super sleuth shopping my mom and me. Now if only we could get rid of the damn fruit on the tiles…
