Easy Upgrades Home Improvement



If you follow us on Twitter, you might have seen Ashley’s rave yesterday about our new door knobs. We “scored something fierce”, as she says. Let’s back up for a second. I was on my way home from work when I got a phone call from Ashley. The reception was bad so all I caught was, “Tuesday Morn…oorknobs…clearan…heavy…pretty…want”. So I decided to stop by Tuesday Morning before I went home. Β When I got there, we sifted through every doorknob in the store, and I ended up buying a new doorknob for every interior door in the house. Needless to say, Ashley was one happy camper.

We scored a huge deal. The privacy and the passage knobs were normally $52.99 each. We were able to snag them for only $19.99 a piece! That’s about 62% off for you number guys like me out there. The dummy knobs for the closets were originally $19.99 but were marked down to $9.99 making them right about 50% off. So an upgrade that was going to cost us a cool $600 came to a much reduced grand total of $251.84, including tax. That made me the happy camper.

Last night and part of today were spent installing the new doorknobs (with the help of Ashley’s dad), and we couldn’t be happier with the way they look. These particular door knobs are solid forged brass. Because of this, they are very heavy, which gives them a really nice feel.

Previously, we didn’t make a habit of visiting the local Tuesday Morning on a regular basis, but after finding a great deal like this, we will definitely make a point to stop by more often. So call us official fans!

    I’ll have to keep Tuesday AM in mind when we are ready to replace ours. You really can’t beat that deal.

    I’m a regular at Tuesday Morning and the good thing about visiting frequently is to keep up with the new stock as it arrives because it goes quickly. You certainly hit the jackpot yesterday…beautiful door knobs.

    I also adored a great deal on ORB door handles. My dilemma is everything else in my home is satin nickel – cupboard pulls, closet pulls. What is the consensus on mixing metal finishes? Do I change my light fixtures, cupboard and furniture pulls to all match?

      In my book, it’s perfectly fine to mix metal finishes!
