I've been looking at knobs this afternoon. [More:]
I'm talking about cabinet knobs, you gutterminds.

I'm keeping my antique pine chests of drawers and bedside cabinets when I decorate my bedroom, but wanted to jazz them up with some lovely glass knobs. There's so little choice available in the UK, and the ones that are on sale here are ridiculous prices, so I've reconciled myself to ordering from the US.

I've decided on these, in an assortment of colours and have worked out that for the quantity I need (26, with four spares) it'll cost less than half a dozen not-as-nice ones from a UK store.

But in my searches, I came across this little gem of a site, for those of you who might want that Sarah Palin bearskin sofa look, but without the killin'. The Home Accents are ... well, words fail me, except now I want a drinking cowboy.
I have this ebay store bookmarked for when/if I need to go knob shopping.

Those rose ones are very sweet.

Those Home "Accents" are pretty horrifying for the most part and would only look good in a trailer. Or a rundown shack. I do, however, think everyone should have the "Two Bored Puppies Humping" coatrack.

The Snowshow-Faux-Antler-Wallsconce - how ever did I live without a pair of these in the living room?

EJ, do you need new door handles? NSFW

Love the handle, too bad it lacks girth.

Nice knobs, jan.
i have a fondness for old glass ones.

Anthropologie has a lot of nice knobs, if you're ever looking again in the future.

They do have some nice ones, occhiblu, but expensive for the 30 I need.

I like your choice in knobs, ej.
