There’s been a lot going on lately and I’m working on small projects around the house. First up is updating the door hinges to match the new door knobs:
See how ugly they were? With the paint settled into the grooves of the screws it’s really hard to remove the hinges. After some work I was able to get them off and replace with a new hinge that has been painted with oil rubbed bronze paint.
The work goes a bit slow because I have been touching up the paint around the hinges and that takes awhile to dry.
Next up is these cork boards that I picked up at work over a year ago (headed for the trash):

And that cleaned most of it. But once it was dried I still needed a little shine. So I tried a tip I’d read about months ago, to use car wax to protect the faucet from water spots. It looked pretty good after the waxing:
After the bathroom faucet I did the second bathroom and then the kitchen. You can really see the difference in the kitchen. Before:
Not bad! Next up is cleaning the fridge and freezer I got for free and I’ll be reinstalling all the drawers, shelves and such this weekend. There’s still a little more cleaning to do and while the unit is cooling down I need to make sure there’s nothing growing.
