Cabinet Hardware … Turning UP the Knob!

Pun Intended!

Christopher Peacock is one of my absolute favorite kitchen designers.  

I love the WEIGHT of his kitchens.

Via
Not only are his spaces pleasing to the eye … You know when you touch a knob it has quality and weight.  
And while #ProjectDownSize is not budget worthy of a CPKitchen … I do want her to have weight.


Thus the knob decision!


Colonial Bronze has become a "go-to" of knobs for me.  They are a good price point, they are solid brass and they have the WEIGHT I look for.


Since I chose the classic round knob I did want to kick it up a notch.  No offense to Big Box Hardware stores, but I wanted them to look better than what I find there.

So we added the Medallion. 



When you choose to add this piece, go ahead and buy yourself some "mid-size" screws.  You will need them to hold the two pieces.  One little note I'd like to let Colonial know is that if a client is ordering the medallions they might change out the screws they send.

Not a Huge Deal.  But boy would they up the Customer Satisfaction Quotient!

So see … I did include the Big Box Store in my need for "just right" screws!


The Kitchen is coming together my friends … cabinets all back up!  Crown Molding being painted and Window Treatments at my workroom.  



Soon … So Soon!


In the meantime, thought you might enjoy the View through my Knob!

ORC Linking Event … Week FIVE!

Let there be LIGHT!  The Week 5 Theme!


If you are interested, you can click below to get a recap.


So … here we are back in the #ProjectDownsize Office Space.  And Yes, we have light.  However … do you see what I see??? Still no ceiling.

Well … I am all on board with the industrial look and all … but I need a ceiling. My contractor is coming next week. See, we had a leak in one of our skylights.  Don and he decided that was more important than my ceiling.  
I was not involved in the consultation!


The Next Addition of Light came on the PB Desk.
Mercury Knobs from Anthropologie.  
Just what the Girl Needed.


And yes, you are spying the feet of Ms. Confidence.  She is here and she is PERFECTION!  She is just not ready to reveal herself in all her Nude glory quite yet!!

If you follow me on IG, you know that my chair is at the upholsterers right now. I checked on her today and the Platinum hide is on.  I just delivered the fabric for the back which is the real pièce de résistance! 

I am so close … but yet so far from completion for Week Six.  I hope you will continue to check in till around Week 10!

The plan is to get the ceiling up and then I am covering the walls in fabric, similar to my illusion office.  You see I have 24 yards of beautiful white silky fabric that I was going to use for new curtains in our master bedroom before we moved.  Well … it is now going to grace my office walls.  But I cannot do this until the ceiling is up.

There is also a great surprise for a countertop that I am making to provide more storage … But I am waiting. Patiently. For the material to arrive!

Go check out all the other Linkers and see what they've been up to.  

The Creativity is Seriously Good my friends!


Thanks again Linda … for helping us all in our quest!
