new knobs

Adam and I go to a place in York called Refinding's on a regular basis - it's an antique consignment shop with lots of neat things. We love digging around to see what we can find to turn into something fun & unique for our home.

This past weekend we found these really cool (old, rusty...) faucet handles. At $3.00 a piece, we picked up all the oranges ones they had!


Our plan (from the second we saw them) was to make them into cabinet door knobs for our built-ins in the family room. A few "trial & error" attempts to see how best to make them and we now have fun orange faucet handle knobs!


Yahoo for a quick & easy, unexpected weekend project. The handles themselves were a couple different sizes which we think gives it added character. There were 5 orange ones total so we have one left for another project  and we already have something in mind!

  1. That's a great idea. The orange is really effective on the white doors.
