My Obsession with Door Hardware!

Here is a another post featuring one of my obsessions; door hardware! I inherited this odd trait from my dad. An old door isn't an old door without some good old fashioned hardware to match! That's why my dad has cardboard boxes full of miscellaneous hardware. But, my collection is not as large, I only have a few escutcheons, pulls and knobs. Here are some pictures I've taken of them.

They all have crackly paint and patina.

This one is really big, there's two keyholes.
This one was probably for sliding pocket doors going from room to room. Unfortunately, this is the only one I have for this purpose.

Don't you wonder what kind of home all of this hardware came from? Imagine all the stories they could tell!

Small glass knobs for cabinetry, quite popular currently, sometimes pricey. I think I have 5 in various sizes. If you plan on buying any to use for furniture, I would get the ones with screws and washers still with them!
Which one is your favorite?


  1. ha, what an unexpected obsession. but i love it.

  2. Hello darling, I've given you the Liebster Blog award on my blog :)

  3. My favorite thing about vintage items is imaging all the stories they could tell. I love the sixth picture, that one is really cool and rustic looking; it looks like it belongs on the door to the Secret Garden or something.
