16 years ago we painted our 1980's oak cabinets. First they were white, then six years ago we decided to paint the bottom cabinets 30's green and the uppers beige. Sometime between then and now we changed the knobs to a brushed silver type knob. But . . . we still had the original bin pulls on the drawers that we put on the cabinet drawers 16 years ago.
We liked them -- thought they had the flavor of a 1920's kitchen but . . .
They were showing their age, they were not brushed metal and . . .
The bottom drawer pull was bent, could not be fastened back into the drawer wood so . . .
I decided that new pulls were needed. I bought some at Home Depot but they screwed in from the front and that was a problem with the old pulls so . . .
I bought another set from Lowes and they were too big -- I discovered that I needed a 3 inch center -- I could not just buy pulls and they would work so . . .
I found some at Restoration Hardware -- they were 3 inch center -- they were a great brushed nickel and they were on sale!!!
They came this week and so . . .
Saturday I put them on the drawers -- and I really like the style -- they have an old fashioned feel and they . . .
Look really good with the knobs on the cabinet doors.
It's a small change but I like my choice. I can now open the bottom drawer by using the pull rather than having to use the top of the drawer!!!!
It's Monday and it is a small metamorphosis but I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday. Join her to see all of the transformations this Monday!
