I'm a knob

Calling all readers...all 11 of you lovelies. I need your help! For Christmas The Hubs built me a couple items. They are gorg but he left picking out the hardware to me-eeks!

Told's gorg. It has a ledge (that I can jazz up a bit with some accessories) and it has drawers (for the mail-yay!) and underneath will be a spot for hooks, to hang the keys.

My favorite part of course is what he had lasered into the wood. It's hard to read but it says "Better when we're together". It's a song by Jack Johnson and it was our first dance song at the wedding. Awww, he definitely gets points for romance!

Now back to the see I love so many different styles that it's nearly impossible to pick just one. I need to pick out hardware for the beauty above and also an extra knob (matching because I am psycho like that. Have to be all matchy-matchy) for the side table he built as well.

I could go with nickle, like the one from True Value below...

 Or I could get the same thing in ORB (Oil Rubbed Bronze), also from True Value...
 Or how about Bronze with copper accents, like this one from Home Depot?
 Or maybe something a bit more decorative (Venetian Bronze) from the Home Depot stash...

Or, or, I kick it up a notch and get something with more panache, like this one from Home Depot?
My original thought was to buy cheap ones, maybe even (GASP!-dare I say it) brass and then spray paint them but I didn't want to spend the time to do it right (I'm feeling super lazy). You know-sand them a bit, prime them and then paint them. You have to do this if you are going to 'touch' them alot; and I intend to :)

So if you will pretty, pretty please (with whip cream and a cherry on top) help me with my little situation I will be eternally grateful.


  1. I like the Venetian bronze - they are pretty, but they don't stand out too much & take any focus away from J's amazing work. Looks so cool!

  2. I agree with Jess, I really like the venetian bronze :)


Thanks for stopping by! Drop me a line...I love comments. XOXO ~Cass
