A while back, Kristen picked up some little ceramic closet doorknobs to replace the plain door knobs we have on some of our closets. (These are non-magical knobs by the way, unlike those in Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Angela Lansbury reference. Pow.)
In our den, we have a sizable coat closet with two shutter doors. The knob on the left door fell off and got lost some tie ago, and the remaining knob was pretty plain looking, so we figured we’d put some fancier knobs on this closet since we spend so much time in the den.
Here’s the closet before:
Taking off the remaining door knob and the screw left in the other door was just a matter of taking out screws. This involved almost getting into the closet to get to the screw heads.
After I got both the old screws out. I had to screw in the new knobs. The threads on the new door knobs were a little larger than the holes in the doors, and the new knob screws didn’t have slots for screwdrivers, so I had to screw them in by holding onto the heads with pliers. This took some time.
After the screws were all the way in, I threaded nuts on the back side to keep them in place.
It’s not a huge difference, but it’s definitely an improvement. Next, we’ll get a few more knobs and put them in some closets we have in the back addition of our house.
