WFMW: Bedroom Door Lock


Hubs & I decided that all parents should have a locking bedroom door for, well....er...obvious reasons. Upon determining that we wanted one, we didn't want to actually go buy one. *Insert frugal solution here!* Our master bathroom DID have a lock on it and since only Hubs and I use that bathroom, it really wasn't too critical to have the lock. So we performed a switch-a-roo and in about 15 minutes changed our bedroom door lockset for the bathroom one. So, if you don't have a locking bedroom door, you might be able to "shop" in your own home for "new" door knob.

Visit We are THAT Family for more Works for Me Wednesday!

Great idea!

Thankfully we have one! LOL I'll have to ask you if you have any ideas on something else though, just remind me and tell me it had something to do with this post! ;0)

We sooo need a lock on our door. I think we're going for the cheap slide lock above the knob. It has to work better than dh's bowling shoe stuffed under the door. ;-)

No secret, just didn't want to make anyone who doesn't feel as free to speak and listen in this area gag ;0)

great idea! We've done the same thing. We actually had a closet door that had a lock...? so we switched it with a bedroom door handle that didn't. :)
