I find that details make a piece. In this case I am talking about knobs and pulls. I have four pieces of furniture I have recently refinished. When Hobby Lobby had their knobs and pulls 50% off I gave each of these new pieces the hardware they deserved.

knobs: $2.50 each
Please excuse the shadows from the chandelier
I wanted the knobs on the china hutch to match the ones on the buffet.
These are the knobs that came on it.
They are white porcelin but I didn't care for the flowers on them.
knobs $1.50 each
a small wooden knob
It had 6 wooden knobs originally.
I painted them oil-rubbed-bronze but didn't like them
door pulls $2.00 each
drawer bin pulls $1.00 each
I purchased the bin pulls on the drawers online at Cripe Distributing. They come in a pack of 25 and cost $14 plus $11 shipping. That's only $1 a piece. I saw these on another gals blog. She used them in her kitchen. I have to admit I had my doubts about the quality since these pulls are expensive at the hardware store. But I couldn't be happier with them. They are very good quality and heavy. I sprayed these with oil-rubbed-bronze paint so they would match the upper pulls and hinges. The only downside is they don't come with screws. I took one to a hardware store and got screws that fit for 5 cents each. I plan on using the rest of these pulls when we refinish our kitchen this summer.
