I’ve been unpacking from Haven this week, and finding room for all the goodies I brought home from sponsors. (See it all HERE in yesterday’s recap post.) One particular item wouldn’t stop staring at me: this beautiful, shiny new waterpik shower head.
With my newfound confidence (I did just buy a wet tile saw!) I thought to myself, “I bet I could do this myself – I don’t need to wait for my husband to do it for me!”
I mentioned yesterday that one of my new favorite people is Sawdust Girl. And I happened to recently come across one of her pins on Pinterest for how to complete this very task. 😉 Read Sandra’s post HERE for how to change a shower head – the tutorial is very easy to understand, and she’s pretty funny too!
This is my “old” shower head- only a few years old but it’s pretty basic.
These are a couple things that I was afraid of before starting out (which may be obvious to some people, but not me!):
1. You do not need to shut off any water valves- just make sure your shower handle is turned off. 😉
2. You don’t need to mess with any pipes or anything – you’re basically just unscrewing the old head and screwing the new one on.
I just followed the super simple directions included in the package and that was it. I couldn’t believe how easy it was! Why was I so nervous??
And yes, I did test it out – it works great!
I’ve been inspired and empowered by Haven, and I want to pass that on to you- which means in addition to furniture makeovers and crafts around here, I’ll be doing more hands-on DIY projects that I used to be nervous about.
What are you inspired to do that you’ve been scared to try?
