There is an image in this post that may make some readers uncomfortable. View at your own risk :-p

When I posted the before/current picture of my kitchen a few weeks ago, I have to admit that I was kinda embarrassed that I had STILL not finished adding hardware to the cabinets. So I got my butt into gear and got to it! You know... five days later... because I'm still lazy!

Anyhow, I managed to drill a niiiice hole into my thumb on the third or fourth cupboard, so let's just say I was a little discouraged.

Tell me that makes you hungry.

Anyhow, I put off completing this for almost a month. There wasn't much longer it could wait since I kept the tools on the counter to remind me to do it.

Sadly, this was all done really quickly, and I just kept thinking, "why didn't I do this before?" (you know, before I remembered that the fatty tissues in my thumb had to be yanked out because I couldn't shove 'em back in).

I totally love all the sparkle that it adds to the kitchen, and alllll that silver throughout makes me totally happy.

There are some issues, though.

I bought these knobs from amazon.com without having seen 'em in person. I figured, "how bad could plain brushed nickel knobs be?" - but they're so big and clunky-looking next to the long, sleek handles on the rest of the cabinets. They make me think of those big earrings from the 50s & 60s that just looked so unproportioned to the ear.

And I plan on replacing them with something like the ones I have on my TV stand and the breadboard on the bar.

(see those nice little knobs? I think those would look SO much better!)

So, my hardware is being worn! Another thing to check off my to-do list! I'm thrilled that my latest projects haven't added anything TO my to-do list! I know, however, that this will be short-lived.

Have you adorned any cabinets lately? Or... anything else, for that matter!?
