More Knobs and Pulls

Now that the master bathroom vanity has arrived I need to find knobs and pulls for the linen closet cabinets.

This is a Crémone bolt.

I wasn’t sure when I ordered it whether the vanity would come with decorative hardware or not but it has not only drawers pulls but also very fancy door knobs called a Crémone bolt.

The drawer pulls look like pewter to me.

I want to get 4 knobs and 2 drawer pulls that will go with the vanity hardware as well as the pulls on the master closet.

The handles on the master bedroom closet door are pewter by the Laurey company.

I think the finish I’m looking for is pewter but it could also be called antique or weathered nickel or zinc or .  .  .

I like this drawer pull at Lowes for its interesting shape.

I searched and searched on the internet and I stopped by Lowes.

The finish of these two pulls don't match.

So far I haven’t come up with just the right thing.

Maybe the Nantucket knob by Laurey would work.

So I’ll keep looking.

Are you a careful shopper? How do you evaluate subtle finish differences on the internet?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. Those Cremone bolts look so interesting. Are they an oiled finish? They look darker than your pewter closet hardware. I like how the drawer pull in the second-to-last photo (where you’re holding the knob) echoes the shape of the long rod in the Cremone bolt. Might you want to rethink the closet hardware and look for something that looks more like the vanity? It’s hard to get everything coordinated!
