What seems like forever ago, I talked about wanting a “special doorknob” for the kitchen pantry door (read that post here). As I explained in the post, I know wanting a “special doorknob” may sound completely pointless and a tad bit trivial, but ever since we bought the house there is one thing I knew: I wanted a pretty, unique doorknob for the pantry door in the kitchen. Odd? Maybe. Silly? Probably. Here are the three choices we narrowed it down to:
Keeping in mind that we posted about this just a few weeks (not even 20 posts in) after starting the blog, so we were really excited to see the votes come in (we didn’t even know anyone was reading!). Option C won by a 9 with 15 votes. We were happy that’s what you guys liked because that was the one we were leaning toward, too!
Nearly 6 months later, we finally got around to filling in what was just a hole in the pantry door and adorning it with our new hardware — or the pantry’s “jewelry” as I like to call it. Not to much surprise, we decided to go with Option C: the Tea House doorknob in Smoke!
We really like how the brown (or “smoke”) crystal doorknob ties in the with dark hardwood floors. It tends to “pop” against the white door whereas if we had picked Option A, the doorknob would have gotten lost.
and if you remember reading the previous post, it has the whole Pollyanna-Hayley-Mills-Glad-Game aspect thing going on. And that makes me a happy camper. When I’m happy, Greg’s happy. And when we’re happy, I’m sure happy-go-lucky Bentley has a little extra spring in his step too. What’s a home if it doesn’t make you happy, anyway?
Do you have any little extra special touches in your house that make you happy?
