It's the little things that make the difference

The old pulls just didn't do it for me. Dirt and dust settled on the top of these and I was forever trying to scour it off. Sometimes I tried to unscrew them from the fronts of the cabinets so I could soak them in hot suds, but I could never budge those screws.
DUH.
It turns out they were fake screws! The entire drawer fronts were screwed to the drawer units and when I took one off, I found the real screws that held the dang handles. So I unscrewed one and took it to Lowes to replace them all.

Well...I had a $10 coupon burning a hole in my pocket.



So I included the knobs too. Well they had to match.

Now I am much happier. These I can keep clean, and stick a dishtowel through, which is so necessary when you hand wash dishes.
The drawer handles and knobs now match the handles on the bathroom faucets which are all so country, but I am at least keeping some consistency.

  1. I hope you didn't toss the those old drawer pulls.......After the holidays I'd LOVE to buy them as that's the old fashion look I'm using for my studio cupboards.
