Today, I'm going to show you how I added cabinet pulls to my doors. I am sure there is some real way to do it, but I didn't know the real way... so I made something up and it worked just dandy.
I added these before I painted the cabinets, so they are oak-colored in this picture...
First, I measured the space where the pull goes:
And when I had the length and width, I cut out a piece of cardboard the same measurements. I used some junk mail... RECYCLING!
Next, I used the pull itself to mark the holes into the piece of paper.
Once I had that done, I measured once more to make sure that my holes were in the exact center of my template.
And then, I put the template on the cabinet door, aligned with the corner, and marked the holes with a Sharpie.
Then, I had the hubbers drill the holes. EASY-SCHMEASY.
I did the same thing for the drawers, but I had to measure a bit more to find the center. The whole thing took less than a hour for 22 pulls.
Oh, and it took me forever to find pulls that I liked that weren't a million dollars. I found them on Amazon for a great price!
Now here's the part where you tell me there is a way easier method to installing cabinet pulls... :)
I would love it if you would follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram!
