Knobs..a doors accessory


Growing up in the south, I learned at a very early age that women didnt leave their home without at least one accessory. An accessory is something nonessential but useful.

Of course we know that door knobs are an essential part of our home but have you ever given thought to dressing yours up.

After I painted my kitchen cabinets it was essential that I replaced those out dated ones with these.

For just a few dollars you can change so much. I know they can get $$ so I went to Lowes and bought these in a value package. Saved plenty!

Let your knobs show who you are and what you like

I try to stay with the same finish if possible. This pair is dressing up my cabinet in the livingroom

Try different shapes in a bathroom. This is my hall bath so I was able to spend a little more only needing two.

When we built the house I had the brass knobs. Just by changing the doorknobs we took years off of our home.

We stayed with the same finish as our cabinet knobs.

You dont have to stop at doors. Try giving that small piece of furniture a punch!

I bought small wooden knobs and painted them to match her room. If you look close you can see where I missed a few spots,yikes. It doesn't matter though because Madison is fixing to get a whole new room makeover..Darn tootin!

This is my desk that I rescued from the dumpster. A coat of black and this sweet knob.

Go big and make a statement if you dare! I found this one at the Hobby Lobby and love it. So go forth and dress your nest to it's best. Your doors will thank you!

  1. I ♥ knobs!! I just redid my TV hutch and put glass knobs on it.
    I think it looks so much more "grown up", yes I said the same thing on my blog but for some reason it just feels more adult.
    How can an old door and glass knobs do that to an item?????? Ahhhhh I love knobs.

  2. I love the fleur de lis! How cute. You're right, knobs make all the difference.
    Um, what's up with your banner though? It's HUGE and gets cut off because of its HUGENESS.

  8. It does make a difference! I redid my kitchen but didn't want to spring for 44 new knobs, so I spray painted them. Works like a charm. They are not perfect, but we know the Nester, right? :)

  9. I have to agree Susie. I grew up in a 150 year old house with the glass door knobs. I still remember gazing at them as if they were diamonds. One of my only regrets is not changing them out and taking them with me when my parents moved! I could kick myself for not thinking of that.

  13. Those knobs are fabulous - I'm a sucker for the oil rubbed bronze. I have my builder knobs that came with our home on craigslist right now - no one is biting! Hope to sell them soon and get something I really want.

  16. I love all your knobs...I have been searching for some great knobs and pulls for my kitchen ( and need quite a few...) I found some awsome pulls and knobs at Hobby Lobby for my MB redo, but still am having no luck with the kitchen...even at Lowes, Home Depot, Menards....does anyone have any good online sources?

  29. Beautiful post, Susie. I love those fleur de lis knobs. I hate to say anything to J, but I'm sort of longing for a little different knob for the island, since it's been painted.

  31. What a difference all those knobs make! I love looking at the knob aisle in Hob Lob and trying to find a reason to buy them. :) Yours look great!!

  32. Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
    I love knobs too -- maybe a little too much. I've started a collection of MacKenzie-Childs' that maybe someday I'll attach to something. They sure are fun to look at.

    ReplyDelete
  33. They all look fantastic! Love them all!!!

  34. New knobs alone made a huge difference in the overall look and feel of our kitchen. The first thing we did after we moved in was get rid of those round brass ones!

  40. I love all the touches you added, just by switching out knobs. :o) I have been on the hunt for glass knobs for a dresser redo and I believe I have found just the ones! I can't wait! :o)

  41. I want those fleur de lis knobs! I want to change all the hardware in my kitchen to an antiquey looking black, something like yours. I will also have to either change or paint all the hinges too so I'm not sure when I'll get to it. Love all the pretty "jewelry" you showed!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm a knob girl too!!! (okay, that doesn't sound right, but you know what I mean)

    ReplyDelete
