I was looking for knobs and drawer pulls for the linen closet just outside the master bathroom.
The vanity came with its own hardware.
I wanted them to go with the knobs and Crémone bolts that came with the master vanity.
I bought 4 Advantage Plus 937 Advantage Plus 5 Knobs and 2 Lauréy 527 Nantucket Pulls from AGTStores.
I ordered everything from ATGStores.com using a 15% discount coupon for less than $20.
The new knob is on the left.
The door knobs are from Berenson — weathered nickel finish.
I like how the ridges on the drawer pulls echo those on the Crémone bolt.
The drawer pulls are made by Laurey — antique pewter finish.
The smaller knob (on the right) that came with the vanity looked better than the larger knob.
I tried the knobs that came with the vanity and the new knobs on a vanity drawer and decided to stick with the original plan — using the new knobs on the linen closet.
Please ignore the disarray on top of the cabinet — those are our lighting fixtures and towel bars that still need to be installed in the bathroom.
I applied the knobs to the doors of the linen closet. The bottom already had holes from its previous incarnation. I drilled new holes in the upper cabinet and bolted on the knobs. (I spaced the knobs with this useful doodad.)
Eventually the vanity will be pushed back out of the doorway.
These knobs and pulls, while not even by the same manufacturer, go very well together.
The screws are spaced 3 inches apart but the overall length is closer to 4 inches.
I wanted to add a tip here for putting on drawer pulls that have 2 holes. When drilling allow a little extra play in the hole to help the bolts line up with the screw holes. At first I had drilled a tidy little hole which I then had to ream out with a Phillips screwdriver. The pulls came with 2 pairs of screws — 1″ (too short) and 1.5″ (too long) — I had to use 1.25″ screws that I had on hand.
We’ll have to move the bottom cabinet out in order to lay the floor.
Once the bathroom plumbing is finished and the hallway floor is laid I’ll be happy to “stage” the linen closet. Until then . . .
What little update are you making for under $20?
