After I painted EVERY door in my house I decided not to put back on the old (read: VERY old) door knobs and to instead slowly replace them.
12 knobs later, I am officially a knob replacing pro. The only nice thing to do is pass on my knowledge to you lovelies.
Some of you probably already know how all this works – sorry for the repeat – others of you will love me and my step by step instructions. Okay, so LOVE might be a little over kill…
Things to note: Make sure the diagonal side of the tongue faces TOWARDS the latch (on the door frame – aka part that doesn’t move)
I didn’t picture the two screws that you screw from one knob into the other – my fault – that should be pretty self explanatory though
I also put knobs on my closet doors – these doors don’t have a tongue and latch and instead use “inactive knobs” which pretty much means “knobs you don’t turn and just pull”
Simple – VERY simple. You literally just screw the knob in place and done. Since I have double doors I used two knobs and placed them the recommended 38” from the floor.
It’s a lot easier getting dressed in the morning with doorknobs to help me get into my closet!
