Interior door knobs
I posted ages ago about being peeved about door knobs and not being thrilled with the plain brass kind for the music room and library. I managed to find ones I liked better and decided to do a swap.
|unscrew the old|
I held the finger plates for the new ones in place and marked up where I needed to put black ink to simulate a keyhole. I already had holes for the rod of course so no drilling was needed.
|mark up the keyhole and colour in a black area|
Then it was just a simple job of adding a couple of touches of superglue for the plates and screwing together the new knobs.
Large rug needed
Also a while ago I showed you how I had joined two rugs together to make a larger rug for the music room and I was reasonably pleased with the end result. When I got it out again I saw how it could be improved on.
The white edges shouted out against the wood floor, especially as there was no white in the pattern of the rug itself.
All it took to remedy this was a black permanent ink Sharpie pen .....
|new black edges|
.........and a couple of minutes 'colouring in'.
|half done, doesn't the black edge look better?|
