New cabinet hardware is the easiest way to update a cabinet. Installing said hardware can be quite the difficult task when the screw holes don’t align with the pre-existing ones. Really wanting to save some when installing hardware I discovered a brilliant hack to make the job much easier.
Try to align the tape as straight as possible. Unlike the way I did it, be smart and use the top edge of the tape to make sure it’s straight. Take a pencil and poke the screw holes. Now you the distance between the holes.
Next, take the tape and stick it on your cabinet, check to make sure it’s straight with a level.
Drill your holes and attach your new hardware.
It’s an incredibly simple way to ensure your holes perfectly align with the new cabinet hardware.
The hardware I used is by Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia from Target.
