Make a template. Use a piece of cardstock. I taped on the cardstock being sure that it lined up EXACTLY with the edge of the cabinet door. I then used an awl and poked through the cardstock into the existing hole in the cabinet door. Then, I removed the cardstock, attached the pull to the cardstock through the hole with a screw. Make sure the pull is pushed up flush to the cardstock and then using the awl, again, poke through the cardstock into the bottom hole in the pull.

This is a wall in our family room where we have started a gallery of frames with pictures we have taken on international mission trips we have been on. There are two pics my husband took when he was in Brazil and Panama. The other pic is one I took of a beautiful little girl I met in Africa. We hope to add many more pics as the years go by.
These next pics show the grouping a little better (taken before I painted that old dresser and before we got hardwood flooring put in).
I added a cream plate with "faith" on it in vinyl.
I also made this little sign out of a piece of wood. The words are from an awesome song by our church worship ministry called, I See the Poor.
I pray this pictures will remind us of our times in these other countries and the mark it made on our lives.
We have another gallery wall on the other side of the room. Our family rules poster (found here) is in the middle surrounded by family portraits.
P.S. Did you see those GORGEOUS floors???!!! : ) Love them! Oh, and I promise I will post about the kitchen tomorrow!
We'll take your truth and we'll take your justice to this broken land
take your salvation to every single nation.
We want the world to know, there's no one like You, Lord.
Every nation is Yours.
Get your copy of I See the Poor or shoot, just download the whole album! You won't regret it! Go here.

I must say that this bathroom was done A LONG time ago. I just never posted pics. This is the upstairs bathroom shared by the kids. It used to look like this:
I put the kids' paintings back in the room. I also added the pair of owls, also painted a glossy white. The towel rack is a board I found at Hobby Lobby that I washed with some teal paint and added some thrifted brass hooks.
