Another kitchen detail


Last week I shared the results of painting the kitchen cabinets, this week we added hardware on the cabinets.

Before cabinet hardware.......



and after...... I decided to just do matching knobs on the cabinets and drawers - my father in law was nice enough to come over and drill all the holes for me. The knobs are "oil rubbed bronze" and I found them at Target in packs of 10 for $16, so it wasn't as expensive that it could have been. I am very happy with the way they look and it is nice to have cabinets and drawers with knobs on - a lot easier to open and find things.

The knobs look great and such a great price. I didn't know Target carried them. I'm in the middle of a kitchen cabinet redo and I'll keep Target in mind. Thanks!

Yes, nice job on the knobs! And such a deal at Target, I wouldn't have thought to look there, they seem to be much more affordable than Lowes. The knobs/pulls in my kitchen are very modern looking, I can't wait to redo them and make them more cottagey. yours look great!

Isn't it amazing what difference detail makes, such as the knobs? My carpenter says it's always the little touches that make a project. And he's right. Looks wonderful!

Knobs, the final touch. I love how your cabinets turned out. I need to put knobs on my cabinets & drawers. Then maybe I wouldn't break my fingernails.

I just went back to look at your post about painting your kitchen cabinets -- the "after" is a big improvement over the "before"!! Your kitchen look so much brighter and fresher now. And the oil rubbed bronze knobs are the perfect finishing touch :-)

Did you buy your faucet, or was it already in the kitchen?? I'm looking for a copper faucet for our kitchen.

Thanks for stopping by our blog and checking out my sunburst mirror project :-)
