I also got the screen changed out in the bathroom window. That was a bit of a pain, but not too horrible. Then came the door knob for the bathroom. This is what the before looked like:
Not horrific, except for the fact that the outside knob wouldn't catch on the mechanism anymore. So if the door got closed from the hallway, you had to use a store reward card (thank goodness they give you multiples of those!), to jimmy the door open. I got the old knob set off:
Ewww. No wonder it wasn't working. I tried cleaning it up, hoping to salvage it, but the inner mechanism just wouldn't catch anymore. So on with the new:
Isn't she pretty! :) Now there is just one small problem.......
The hole in the door for the old knob is too small for the new knob. I called my brother, but he didn't think my dad had any hole saws anymore, so off to the hardware store I go.
There was a great older gentleman there, who recommended this for me, and I am glad he did:
The gray plastic piece with the hole in the middle (where the saw is-that is separate), screws to the face plate on the side of the door to act like a guide, so that the hole saw doesn't "dance" around. It worked like a charm!

I then ran another errand for my mom, so now I am sitting in my shorts and no shoes (it got to near 90 today), relaxing...because frankly, I did enough today lol.
Have a great night!
