Each year I look forward to the warm weather that spring brings. The scent of the fresh grass and the feel of the warm breeze makes me want to curl up on the porch with a nice long book. But first, I am always compelled to make things look clean and pretty. So, some springtime porch decor is in order.
A few years ago, I showed you how to get rid of those frigid drafts coming in through your windows. Well, this year I wanted to show you how to insulate doors and get rid of drafts that make their way through your entrances. There are just a few specific areas where that cold air can enter, and likewise, there are just a few specific projects that you can do to stop them.
Have you ever looked at your cabinets and noticed that the doors just aren’t aligned straight with each other. It may seem like a minor issue, but unaligned doors can detract from even the most beautiful cabinets. That’s why it is always a good idea to know how to align cabinet doors. Trust me! Eventually you will need to do this.
If you have stained, wooden exterior doors, you know that they can be quite beautiful. You probably also know that they can start to look a bit run down after just a few years of rain, snow, sleet, hail and sun. Keeping them looking fresh takes a bit of maintenance. However, sometimes you just don’t know how important regular maintenance is until your doors are in need of a complete overhaul. I am ashamed to say that I neglected my own doors for the past few years and was faced with this same situation. But, not to worry, I was able to get them looking like new with just a little bit of time and effort. If you want to know how to refinish wooden doors, just keep reading.
If you have ever needed or wanted to take off your door handleset, you probably have noticed that they are a bit more complex than a standard door knob. For one, there is usually no noticeable screws. So, how are you suppose to get the darn thing off?!?! Well, it’s not as complicated as it appears, and I can show you how to remove door handlesets using just a few common household tools.
