Still working on small house "redos", after the remodeling.
The base boards and levelor doors were all dark wood from the 70's. We changed the base boards to a light cream color through out the house and now are repainting all the doors.
While painting the doors the new (fresh clean cream) color, I realized how
dull and uninteresting the old knobs were.
Just plain, round, brown wood.
My sweetheart has a bucket of old handles and drawer pulls left over from his building birdhouse days.
Off came the 'old knobs' and on with the older-distressed-crummy-knobs.
I like the the new/old character better, it's more interesting.
