Hands up if you rent? Hands up if your rental is pretty darn ugly? Hands up if you don’t really want to fork out loads of cash, but you don’t know if you will survive all the ugliness?
I hear you. And so does Almost Makes Perfect. ( If you haven’t been reading her blog, you reaaaally should. She is pretty cool if you ask me. And instructions for this DIY are HERE) And here is the answer. Leather pull straps. So.Easy.

Done! No more ugly handles! Phew.
