When we updated our main hallway with fresh white paint, some art, and new interior door levers and exterior door knobs, we found some small little knobs for the two closet doors that matched so well!
Unfortunately, I quickly learned that the quality was garbage and they started to spin. They were a “t” shape and the horizontal bar actually spun whenever we touched it. I was certain it would break off and it was just so frustrating to use. But I couldn’t decided what to replace it with until a Canadian company, Sparroh, reached out about working together. The owner, Alana, was kind enough to send me that sweet little felted wool basket for Hynda that you saw yesterday, and she also had a solution for my knob woes: a beautifully curated hardware selection.
Without having to comb through an inventory of 1,000,000 knobs, I found the perfect ones: the ocean aqua knobs! At only $8.00 a piece, they are a steal for such a quality ceramic knob. I love the turquoise – obviously – and the crushed “beach glass” effect is so interesting. I have such a passion for texture these days: linens, tweeds, velvets – give me any kind of texture over pattern! So these were definitely the perfect fit for my lakehouse.
It took two seconds to switch out my old knobs for these and I just love the impact. Visually, it’s small detail and I’m sure that in photos of the hallway, only we would notice that the knobs are different. In real life, guests oooohh and aaaaah over them and, most importantly: day to day it’s just so nice to have our closet knobs do their job, as intended (#itsthesmallthings).
Why, oh why, do Hubby and I sometimes wait forever to tackle these little improvements that have such a positive impact on our day to day lives?
If you’re a fellow Canadian, take a peek at Sparroh and maybe you’ll find the answer to a decor problem too! Did I mention there’s free shipping and free returns? I work with so many US-based companies so I’m really thrilled when I can help promote a Canadian biz – be sure to follow Sparroh out on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest so you can be the first to know about sales and new inventory.
Now, help me feel better and tell me about a project on your to-do list that would make your life easier – but that you’ve been avoiding… I want to hear all about it!
