Long Awaited...

Finally after months of waiting, our kitchen handles will be going on our doors this weekend. It felt like ages ago now that I painted the doors white and I have had the handles in a box in the pantry waiting for just as long. We have just been so busy lately that time has just slipped away from us. Here are the handles I have chosen...
Brushed Nickle Mortise knobs for the doors...

and Brushed Nickle bin pull handles for the drawers. Once they are one I will be sure to show you the finished (finally) product.

It will never be a gorgeous farm house kitchen, but it will do!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that you get to finish one of your long awaited projects =0)

  1. Ness, your new knobs are gorgeous and will look perfect in your beautiful kitchen. Have fun putting them on and enjoy the wonderful results:) Wishing you the loveliest weekend my friend ~ Tina xx

  2. Sehr guter Geschmack! Die Griffe gefallen mir auch. Die werden deine Küche bestimmt aufwerten!

  3. The handles look lovely, Ness. The knobs are quite a bit like some of mine!

  4. Brushed nickle is my favorite. Enjoy your new kitchen-it's gorgeous !

  5. The handles are great. I like the simple, nostalgic form very much. There are so many on market, but hard to find beautiful handles.

    Your choice is excellent!!!

    Greetings and beso


  6. Hi Ness,
    Your bin pulls and knobs are classy, classic and dateless. You will love them when you get them on, I'm sure. Brushed nickel, can't go wrong. In our old kitchen, we had cheap horrible ones and eventually when opening a cupboard they would fall off in your hand - not a good look to say the least. Enjoy your weekend.
    Take care

  7. YAY...will look a million bucks once they are on..good stuff! :)

  8. Gorgeous knobs and handles. Love that look. You won't know yourself when you are able to open the door with a real handle rather than prizing it open with your fingernails! Been there, done that!

  9. It doesn't need to be "farmhouse" to be pretty. I like your kitchen, it's clean and calming, and simple.

  10. They're going to look great! I paricularly like the drawer pulls. Enjoy your weekend!

  11. Ness, LOVE your choice of hardware. Just perfect! Lori

  17. Those knobs and pulls are fabulous! They will transform your already lovely kitchen into an even more gorgeous space! We just put black bin pulls on our dove grey island...the rest of the cabinets are black with nickle hardware. I'm LOVIN' my pulls!

  18. yes the final touch is always the crown on your work.
    Always the small things that make,s something special, but that are also the things that take sometimes the most time.
    I know, my kitchen is also waiting for the final things.
    I think your knobs will look very
    greetings Trudy
