Modern v.s. Vintage Cabinet Hardware

This just in:

our kitchen tile floor!


Chloe the Dachshund approves!


After 2+ years, the closer we get to the finish line,

the more I yearn to get those little features

that will finally make this place a home.

Let’s start with kitchen cabinet hardware, shall we?

At first, I toyed with the idea of going modern farmhouse

+ picking something similar to our dishwasher handle:


I mean, we both love it,

+ in fact, it’s the reason we chose the dishwasher!

Is that so wrong? 

But really.  Really?

I just couldn’t get on board.  It wasn’t right.

So.  After (lots) more searching, I decided on vintage-style glass!

Like these:

cabinet hardware -- black glass pull and knob

The black would tie in all the dark grays + nearly black floor tiles!


Within moments, I ordered a sample, from here:

While I was at it, I threw all caution to the wind

+ ordered some colored ones, as well!

Blue milk glass:

cabinet hardware -- pale blue milk glass pull + knob

These are beyond gorgeous in person,

+ their pastel awesomeness is so ‘now’!

But really.  Really?

I mean, it had to be these:

cabinet hardware -- red glass

cabinet hardware -- red glass knob

That’s more like it!

And there’ll be no mistaking whose kitchen it is!

Which is pretty much how I roll, décor-wise.

And people.  The pulls cost a mere $4.45 each,

+ the knobs are only $2.09 each!

That’s just crazy!


What do you think?


I think I ordered them yesterday,

+ have already received an e-mail heads up

that they’ve already been shipped!

Stay tuned!

    I’m glad you’re favoring RED for your handles! That would’ve been my first choice! I’m with Chloe, and also love your kitchen floor!

      TY for the comment, Dolores. I was afraid that our kitchen was too boring, so I’m glad that I chose the red, too! I forgot to mention that I ordered a cobalt blue sample. Doesn’t everyone love cobalt blue? I thought it was a tad too garish, sadly.
