The most exciting of which has to do with... where else, but the kitchen? (I've been focusing on that room for what feels like TOO long! But don't worry, we'll get a break!)
I got all of the hinges changed out, so I've been able to move onto the pulls!
Or... at least the first drawer...
What you SHOULD do when installing drawer hardware is to empty the drawer.
Especially if it looks like this..
But, if you know me, you know I'm not a do-things-right kinda girl..
I just pushed everything out of my way and dove right in! Removed the drawer face.
Played around with pull placement before being shoved aside by the expert.
Placed them a couple different ways before figuring that there should be more to my placement strategy than just eyeing it...
Like this? It looks cross-eyed...
My formula was to divide the width of the face in quarters, and put the center of the pulls a quarter of the way in from each side. Since I had 3" pulls (3" is the amount space between screw holes), I measured 1 1/2" fron the center in both directions and that was where I screwed my holes.
These pulls needed to be countersinked, so I used my countersink bit to dig in there...
See the "mess"? That's where I was SO THANKFUL that these pulls hide that!
Then I had to take a break, because these cheeks don't stay chubby on their own!
(like the mullet? it's always amplified after a nap!)
A few more "goes," and they're done!
Here's a tip for people changing their drawer hardware... If you have a removable face, you need longer screws than what's provided. You just do... Accept it.
One down, 5 drawers and 25 cabinets to go!!!!
Have you changed hardware lately? Did you know about the extra screw needs? What was for lunch? :-p
