In my enthusiasm for tackling lakehouse projects I had removed all of the doors - including those to the bathrooms - and piled them in the garage. Then I had to leave, and the doors stayed untouched. Getting them painted and back on their hinges is high on my list of priorities, starting with the bathroom door. Luckily, I already found some incredibly stylish new door hardware.
I'd been on the hunt for new door hardware since September, and was specifically looking for something with a mid-century feel after spotting a sleek lever in a magazine. I had ripped out the page back in 2011, ready with hardware ideas before we even thought about moving from the townhouse.

It was really easy to navigate around the Sure-Loc website because the hardware is organized by style and series. I spent quite a bit of time ogling the "Modern Series," where my Juneau style was found. I also contemplated the Oslo and Torino, below, but the Juneau is perfect.
I'm really excited because when we moved into the townhouse we gave the doors a new coat of paint and replaced the cheap, 1980s gold knobs with inexpensive satin stainless tulip knobs.
I really pay attention to door hardware: in addition to replacing all of the interior and exterior door hardware in the townhouse, I also replaced the handles on my jewellery armoire and filing cabinet. I am hardware-crazed.
