There is nothing more I rather do then post a TON of before and after pictures for you all, but it's the 1% that's still unfinished which is killing me.
Knobs/drawer pulls... kitchen hardware just generally as a whole.
Originally, Chris and I fell in love and decided on these Fintorp pulls (and matching knobs) from Ikea.
|As modeled here by our pantry in our laundry room.|
Well, the evil kitchen gods must have heard our perfect little plan and decided to take a
With four packages down and only 3 more needed (we needed a total of 15 and we had one extra left over from our laundry room), I was super shocked to find that there were still four packages left... in Brooklyn, NY...
Lucky for me, I was going to be in NYC for work.... it only took a cab, subway ride, and water ferry to get me over to Brooklyn during my day off.
And so now we are stuck... 8 awesome pulls and 15 lonely drawers.
Chris and I have looked online for replacements and cant seem to find anything we like or that is under $20 a pull. (I'm sorry but I'm not spending $500 on kitchen hardware)
I'm sure we will find something soon... not to mention that my mom is coming in town this weekend and she has the BEST shopping karma EVER, so we'll see.
The 8 pulls that we have we plan to use in the bathroom for our new vanity (as soon as THAT project starts... now looking more at an early summer start date) and sell whatever we don't use on e-bay. True story side note: Our exact two pack of the stainless steel Ikea Fintorp handles just sold for $66.00 on ebay for one (yes, 1) set!! Again, they were $7.99 normally at Ikea.
Do you guys have any ideas on handles or pulls? We are trying to go for cottage shabby chic. I would love for you to leave a comment with a link if you have any ideas!!
