Last weekend the knob with star backplate that I ordered from Rejuvenation arrived last weekend (and with a catalog!). This week has been semi busy so, I finally got to trying it out in the bathroom.
This is what we've been staring at for a couple years. Not exciting. Actually, this isn't even the original one because this is one Bill went and grabbed because the original was so much more horrible (ok, this one really isn't that bad).
When the new knob arrived, I quickly ripped open the packaging because I never measure anything to see how it would fit but knew that if it didn't work in the bathroom, I would find another use for it. I ran into the bathroom and discovered that it could in fact work, but there was a "but"...
Where the hole is currently drilled for the knob, the play would have to sit as a square. If I drilled a new hole more in the middle, it could be at its full "star" potential.
I'm not entirely sure if I should drill the hole. Is it worth it? Drilling holes that I can't patch, like in a wall, make me nervous. And on top of that, does this knob even work here?
I'm thinking we will live with it like this for awhile and see how it feels... It's easier to sit on it and think for awhile now than to go ahead, drill a hole and regret it later.
