While we were in Houston for Christmas, I headed out to Anthropologie with a couple of my sisters to check out their hardware. Luck was on my side and everything I got was on clearance to begin with, and all clearance items were an additional 50% off. I bought 6 melon cabinet knobs ($1.50 each), 1 doorknob ($5), and 5 iron hooks ($1.50 each), bringing my grand total to under $23 including tax. Paying full price is for suckers!

Taken with my new camera. Thanks MOM!

And because I'm impatient I wanted to see what the knobs would look like on the dresser-turned-vanity (which is currently still a dresser). The top drawers had 2 knobs each originally, but I filled and sanded the holes and will just put one knob in the middle (the old knob layout required 8 knobs, but the store only had 6 matching pink ones on clearance). I also stained the top with a walnut stain and will be applying a Waterlox finish soon.

Now to decide what color to paint the rest of it. At the rate we're going, I've got 10 years to decide, so there's no great rush.
