What to do

Man, I never knew owning a home would be so hard.
Travis and I spent 45 minutes in Lowe's picking
out our favorite door knobs.
WE kept going back and forth...back and forth
and we finally came to a decision.
We had to buy a total of 5 bad/bathroom knobs
4 closet knobs
and 2 deadbolt and entry knobs.
Which adds up very quickly!!!!!!
We went with an antiqued brass knob throughout.

We get to our house and put on the first knob
.................I don't know
let's think about it before we open any other ones
........................I think it looks alright
.................I don't know
how about we leave it over night think about for
a while and we can decide.

................I think I would like silver better.
Looks like we will be spending another 45 minutes at Lowe's
If we were in a rental and needed a knob I would instantly
go for the cheapest thing I could find, but it's different
this time, because
everything just has to be perfect.
We are going to be looking at these door knobs
for a very long time.
I can't long it will take us to pick out bigger items
I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is so fun and exciting!!!!!!!!!

It took us almost a year to pick out paint colors for all of our rooms. And for about 6 months we had several different patches of paint samples all over our kitchen and living room walls.

I totally know what you are talking about! But the great thing is, there is no rush at all and you don't have to worry about your "6 month lease going up and maybe all your work will have gone down the drain." Its your house, so take your time and get what you love :) Congrats!
