First, I apologize for originally saying the title was a reference to TLC. I’m embarrassed. Second, we went to Lowe’s to purchase this hardware this past weekend but The Mister was not feeling it. The “pointy” knobs bothered him.
Therefore, we took another look at a Kraft Maid knob and pull set and ended up ordering them. They are $7 something for a knob and $8 something for a pull.
Do you like my phone cover? It’s from J. Crew.
I agree with The Mister that the flat face knob does not have the potential to inquire like the one above. However, I can’t say I’m jazzed about them. Of course, that could be attributed to the fact that I just want a kitchen to put the hardware in at this point. What hardware does get me jazzed?
This hardware is fantastical!
I asked Jessica about the brass and glass pull and the faceted brass knob because they make my heart leap. They are not in production for another month or so and she hopes to get pricing to me within the next few days. All I know thus far is that she’s considering a change from glass to acrylic/lucite and the pull’s hole to hole dimensions is 4.25.” I’m a mixture of excited, nervous and anxious to get her pricing. Also, saying “hole to hole” makes me feel weird.

Though I could not find it, I’m pretty sure today’s title is not my first Salt-n-Pepa reference.
We decided to use knobs on the kitchen doors and pulls on the drawer faces. The pulls are going on the middle of drawer faces. As you may know, I’m on the road a lot right now. It’s been hard to make decisions and feel confident in them without being home. Since I cannot be home to show The Mister what I’m trying to convey, I’ve resulted to computer drawings. They’re not great, but they get the point across. Of course, I’d prefer to draw them on graph paper. Here are the drawings for “where to tell the installer to put the hardware.”

So, I really like this chandelier.
Lowes: Westmore Lighting 6-Light Weathered Beige Contemporary Chandelier
Overstock: Weathered Beige 6-Light Chandelier
My mother likes it too. I know this because she bought it after we saw it at Lowes. However, I feel a little nervous about it. I’m afraid it’s too much. Too contemporary with the jewel flowers. Overstock calling it “weathered” bothers me too. Hmmmm….what about a different one?
Antique Bronze 6-light Chandelier
It’s $248.99 at Overstock and looks similar to Pottery Barn’s Camilla 6-Arm Chandelier which is $399.00. However, the Overstock version has some reviews that make me say “WhaaWhaaWhaaaaa” in my head. They consistently say that having to put the thing together takes quite a few hours and they have to spray paint some of it. But, the Pottery Barn still requires assembly too. Here it is:

Then, I go back to Shades of Light Gold Wheat Chandelier.
