How to change out your door knobs

Don’t forget to come link up your door projects, bedroom door, front doors, door decor, closet door, cabinet door???

I had grand plans to PAINT my “front” door (since we’re in a basement our “front” door leads to the back yard…) but the weather has been so so SO cold here in UT (negative digits for weeks, then freak freezing rain) it just didn’t work out.

Double Trellis Wall Stencil

It’s done!  My room stencil is done and we’re moving into our room!  It only took a year!  My sister in law moved out of the extra two rooms in the basement last year and while I moved in to the office right away the bedroom has taken longer.  It’s been the thing we’ve been putting off in favor of more urgent things over and over again, but I finally got it done, and just in time for the baby to come! (warning: the color of the walls isn’t quite right, no matter how I worked in photoshop I couldn’t get it quite right!)

We actually had to start with getting the walls repaired and textured.  THEN I put up the trim, primed and finally did high gloss white on the trim, doors and ceiling.  Then picking the colors!  I considered grey because grey is so popular, BUT I kind of don’t like it.  I hate yellows, creams, and cool colors.  I like warms, so we decided to go with browns.  It actually took 3 days of playing with paint for us to decide what colors to work with.
