While I was stressing over getting the old house on the market, Alan and Nathan were diligently installing all the door knobs.
On the main floor we put Emtek crystal door knobs. I love the old fashioned look.
Looking down the hall into the master bath, they look so elegant.
Upstairs, we’ve kept the trim much simpler and opted for a simpler, but still old fashioned, door knob.
And again, looking into one of the bathrooms…
Now here’s where the broomstick part comes in.
We had ten pocket doors.
And those are a real pain to hang, adjust and then… the hardware…
but doesn’t it look great? Having grown up in Druid Hills with all those grand old houses with the double pocket doors, it just looks so right to me.
And now that I’ve got the doorknobs all sorted out, it’s on to cabinet knobs.
Big? Little? Round? Oval?
What’s the right placement? Up here or down on the corner?
And then we have the drawers…knobs or…
And then what to do with this cabinet with its doors and drawers? All knobs? All handles? Knobs and bin pulls? The possibilities are endless…
By the time I get it sorted out, I might really be ready to mount my broom.
