Down to the Details - Hardware

Sunday, October 7, 2012

Not too long ago I blogged about some easy details you can change or add to your existing pieces to give them a more custom look. You can read that post here.  When I'm shopping for furniture for clients, my booth or my own home, I'm attracted to pieces with great hardware.

 Case and point - the credenza in my family room.  When I bought it at a resale shop, it was wearing a very dull and very 1970's brownish gold wood stain finish.  I knew the piece had great lines and I already l loved the hardware, so all it needed was a fresh coat of shiny black paint. 

I also bought a pair of these nighstands for my master bedroom because I fell in love with the drawer pulls. You can read about their makeover here.
Here's a thrift store jewelry box I bought because of the lions head pulls and the nail head trim..  

And holy wow, we can't forget the original over-the-top brass hardware on my front doors. Which is not to say we bought the house because of the front door hardware, we'll just call it an added bonus. 

Here's a much larger version of some lion head pulls. Outstanding against the black doors!  Image from Bijou and Boheme

The first thing that caught my eye in this image was the brass hardware. 

Did you already see this bathroom from Brian Patrick Flynn? He cleverly used door knockers as cabinet hardware. 

Surely I'm not the only one who bought a piece of furniture because of the hardware. Have you ever done that?
