Easy 5 Minute Home Updates!

December 22, 2013

So with Matt being out of town and me having no internet, these past two weeks have been busy ones for me (just kidding! so much free time!). So of course, I have to come up with quick fixes around the house.

First things first, a peephole on the front door.

I see youuuuu

For some reason, none of the houses we looked at up here had peepholes (including the house we bought). I didn’t really notice until my friend Stephanie told me she wanted one on her door. So for Christmas, I installed a peephole for her! Then, I realized I wanted one for my own, so a quick trip to the home depot and 10 minutes with my drill and I was done!

I also, took 5 minutes out of my not-so-busy schedule to install a doorstop on our garage door.

All of the garage doors here are the kind required by fire code to swing themselves closed. It’s a pain when you’re trying to carry groceries in the house, or trying to sit on the steps to put shoes on (my real tragedy). So, stealing from Jason & Erin’s house, I got a door stop!

Before, we were having to use a fire extinguisher to prop the door open.IMG_4549 Now we can just put down a doorstop! It’s sad amazing how much this excites me.IMG_4551 And the number one thing to remember when doing any home improvement projects is safety!IMG_4552Always use eye protection, people.
