The Land of Knob

Knobs to me are like little treasures.  I seriously get giddy when I browse through Anthropologie and just imagine a big trunk full of these little, perfect, pretty pieces on display in my home....that would be phenom. I really want to get huge Apothecary Jars and just have them on display like jewlery on my vanity.  Anyway, back to reality.  I went to Hobby Lobby to buy some knobs (because I had a 40% off coupon that couldn't go to waste), and I found some great little updates for two pieces in my home.  Seriously, what is better than a 5 minute project to totally update a piece of furniture?  Ah-ma-zin.
What I found at Hobby Lobby

The vintage Locker before the new knobs (you can barely see that there are even pulls)

After.  I love the Door knob look and the crystal is such a better contrast against the Black.

Sideboard before the new knobs (again, no contrast).

After.  I love these little knobs.  Much better.

Need a little Land of Knob inspiration?  These are my favorites right now (all from Anthropologie.com). I'm thinking about getting the "No 354" one for Capt. Crazy and Mr. Delicious's large Black Dresser in their room...hmmm.  P.S.  How whimsical is that little bird knob?  Perfect for an end table with a single knob to make a statement.   Enjoy!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!!  I'm off to my Sisters to get ready for our big garage sale tomorrow.  I love getting rid of junk...it's so liberating!
