I bogged up the old holes with patching plaster. Once sanded, it barely needs painting.
Another three lots of five minute jobs was actually exactly that, replacing the bedroom door hooks. Well, maybe half an hour including gettin tools out and clean up.
The old hooks. R's bedroom.
The spare room.
They all look like this now. Much nicer and match the chrome door handles.
We are not finished yet. While we had very limited choice because of the small size, that is the existing screw holes, at a specialist door handle shop we found new handles for the bathrooms. They were only $6.90 each, but multiply that by ten for four bathroom cupboards in each bathroom and two for the laundry doors. Of course they were out of stock but they came in the next day and I collected them. After the money we have spent on the bathrooms, we were not going to leave them with old fashioned handles that we didn't like for the sake of $70. That is, not spoiling the ship for a ha'p'orth of tar. This is the old handle.
Replaced by these.
R said, you have to get rid of both that old brown soap dispenser and toothpaste holder. I did, and found these on a great special at Bed, Bath and Table.
We have drains in the bathroom floors, in case of overflowing baths. I washed out the old liquid soap container and put it in the bin and then wondered why my socks felt wet. Yes, suds from me washing out the old soap dispenser rose from the drain.
We really thought we would be absolutely finished by last Thursday, but Regency who were to install our new shower screens has delayed the installation until next Wednesday, which is probably today.
