I have been thinking hardware lately, knowing that I will be refinishing some old furniture pretty soon. Knobs and handles are sure to make all the difference, so the first place that came to mind was anthropologie. I have been admiring their hardware since the late 90′s, and now they have all kinds of drool-worthy items (stay tuned for a post on their bedding…weak in the knees.)
How to choose with all these beauties?
Anthropologie also has switch plate covers. The pressed tin-type are wonderful. When I was single, I often went out and bought specialty fabric and custom papers to cover the switchplates in my house. It is a fun and fantastic DIY project, especially if you’ve come across a print that you love. Everyone always commented on the unexpected covers. Now that I don’t have endless free-time, however, I would love to get some of these.
