Doorknob Renovation

The great thing about living in an old home is the charm and character that it radiates inside and out! John recently dove into a home project and restored our doorknobs and locks to their original state. He worked on it for about 2 days and they look fantastic!




In case any of you have older homes and appreciate the "original" look for things I would reccomend following the steps below for a helpful way to take off any unwanted paint on doorknobs.

Things you will need:

1) Baking Soda

2) Good Brush for scrubbing

3) Deep Old Pan

4) An iPad or electronic device to entertain yourself :)

After boiling the doorknobs in the pan I would advise burning a candle immediately afterwards, because it will make your house smell like rust. Luckily, the odor doesn't last too long.

  1. John did a very good job. The door knobs do look much better than being painted on. Looks original.
