At a yard sale a few weekends ago, Mike (my awesome hubby) spotted a pile of brushed nickel cabinet pulls. About two-thirds of them had been used, but looked brand new, and the other third were still sealed in the package. I pointed to them and asked the seller “How much?” and he replied “A buck”. While trying to gauge how many pulls were in the pile (31), I said “How much for all of them?” and he replied “A buck for ALL of them”.” SOLD!!!!! I love sellers who really want to get things out of their house.
A few days before, we’d been discussing installing drawer knobs and pulls on our cabinets. In the not to distant future, we plan on rearranging the cabinets, re-facing them and replacing all the doors and drawer fronts. But, that project isn’t going to be done right away and we really hate not having pulls. Mike had saved a stash of 30+ brushed nickel knobs from a cabinet job he did about 14 years ago (yes, he’s a saver). We’d been considering buying either more of the knobs or a coordinating pull, but we waited because we knew that we would be choosing a totally different style when we update the cabinets. So, when we saw the pulls at this sale, we couldn’t believe it. They were a perfect match.
So, last weekend we (mostly Mike, but I helped) installed the knobs and pulls. Mike also had the brilliant idea to move two of the glass cabinet doors to a different cabinet, which we use as a liquor cabinet. We love the way it turned out. We think it makes the cabinets look so much nicer. It definitely helps us live with the cabinets in their current form. I smile every time I walk into the kitchen and it only cost us one dollar! Plus, we have 13 pulls leftover.
We also bought this brand new, unused Andersen window with trim and everything for $10! The seller bought four of them and then decided to use only three. We’re planning to eventually finish our attic and make it into more living space. This window is perfect for what we’re planning to do.
