Changing outlets was SO intimidating to me when I started doing projects around the house. Electrical seems intimidating and scary. But it DOESN’T HAVE TO BE.
Here are the simple steps for changing out an outlet:
Turn off the power for the outlets
Check to see there is no electricity and unscrew the old outlet
Place the new outlet
Ground (bare) wire to green
White wire to silver screws
Black wire to gold screws
Reattach screws into outlet box
Screw in your new cover
TA-DA! Old/loose/broken outlet NO MO.
I recommend using a screwdriver so you don't strip your screws! I used a drill because it was all I had on hand.
You totally can do this!
