this weekend i was in murfreesboro, tennessee working on a nursery for my friends jenny and brock. you can see the work i previously did a few years ago on their home here. we got a lot accomplished but it’s not put together enough to take photos yet. i’ll be putting the finishing touches on harper’s nursery when i go back up there in about a month.
before i left town last week i picked up some cabinet knobs from anthropologie for the antique buffet that we are using as harper’s changing table. i also wanted to purchase some of the regular door knobs that they had, but they were really pricey. i knew that brock (jenny’s husband & soon-to-be harper’s father) would never give in to that idea. i’m having a hard enough time convincing him that we need to exchange the ceiling fan for a chandelier. i keep telling him that sweet little baby girls really need chandeliers in their rooms. i think he’ll give in before harper gets here. at least i hope he will.
anyway, back to the story. while we were out shopping for the nursery i came across a great find. we were at hobby lobby looking for some wide ribbon for the crib bedding, and i somehow ended up on a decorative hardware aisle. i’m not a regular at hobby lobby so this hardware aisle surprised me. i’m not sure how long they’ve been carrying hardware but i didn’t see it the last time i was in there. i was even more surprised when i started looking more closely and found out that most every piece was extremely similar to anthropologie’s hardware with the exception of the price tag. anthropologie’s cabinet knobs range from $8 - $15. the hobby lobby ones were $4 - $6 and they were on sale for 1/2 off. i had my handy-dandy camera with me so i snapped some pics.

they also had door knobs that were about 1/2 the price of the ones at antrhopologie plus another 1/2 off of that with the sale price. harper is getting her decorative door knob after all and at a fraction of the cost of the real ones. i’m using the cream and red painted one below for her closet doors.
i was so excited about my hobby lobby find. it made my weekend! isn’t it funny how little things can make you so excited sometimes.
