Out with the Brass

I feel like I am playing catch up on getting y’all up to date on all of the Pinterest projects I’ve done so far. In yet another effort to make my house fabulous, I decided to change the color of my downstairs hardware. 🙂

Based on this pin that linked to a website here I attempted to give it the ole Pinterest try!

Instead of embarking on the entire house, I decided only to do the hardware on the 6 doors downstairs.

Aside from the occasional guest, it’s just me and my two girls. So I had to find a way to take the doors down so that I would be able to put them back up by myself. What I decided to do was to take each of the top hinges off, paint them let them dry, and put them back on, THEN do the middle hinges on all the doors, and finally the bottoms. It was a labor of love.

Of course no project done by me would be complete without a snafu of some kind.

I knew they were different, but I didn’t know how strong the spring hinges were that go out to the carport-turned garage. When I unscrewed one side of the bottom hinge, it snapped back. Its such a strong hinge I can’t seem to get it opened long enough to unscrew the hinge plate from the door. 😦 Therefore I’ll have to enlist the help of some male friend in the future.

I’ll update this post when I finally finish. I still have to do the door with the spring hinges and one other door hinge. Lol
