I was looking for knobs and drawer pulls for the linen closet just outside the master bathroom.
I wanted them to go with the knobs and Crémone bolts that came with the master vanity.
I ordered everything from ATGStores.com using a 15% discount coupon for less than $20.
The door knobs are from Berenson — weathered nickel finish.
The drawer pulls are made by Laurey — antique pewter finish.
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.
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.)
These knobs and pulls, while not even by the same manufacturer, go very well together.
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.
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?
