So since we're obviously not busy at all, I decided to buy some new pulls for the kitchen cabinets. The ones we have are just fine, but I've coveted those long rod-like pulls since we lived in our Florida house where we had no cabinet pulls.
As much as I like the long pulls I didn't want to have to drill a second hole in our cabinets to install them. In fact, I'm pretty sure S said "absolutely not" when I suggested them when we first walked into our house. So I've been looking for modern looking bar-like knobs on the sly since we moved in over a year ago. The other night on a whim, I decided to check out Home Depot's online knob selection when I came across these guys:
They seemed to fit the bill: kind of modern looking with only one fastener. I ordered 16. And they were delivered in record time. While I waited for my afternoon tea water to boil the other day, I installed a few just to see if we like them
I think I may love them. S isn't entirely convinced, but I think he's leaning towards agreeing with me, which is to say he isn't adamantly opposed to them.
We're still on the hunt for the perfect tile, but I think the knobs are a step in the right direction. Just a touch more modern, and far easier a project than doing something fabulous with that basement we have going on beneath us.
