I could use a little help...

Well I'm back. We had my birthday celebration this past weekend with all my family. My cousins from all over came up and we packed into my parent's and grandparents houses in the upstate and had a WONDERFUL time. It was so nice just to have time to be together. We ate and shopped and ate some more- took naps and had chocolate = the perfect weekend.

My b-day is tomorrow, and me and the hubby are planning on going out and eating way too much and drinking some good wine. I love dates with my hot husband!!!

Anyhow, I have been working on a little something I need some help with. A little audience participation if you will. So please let me know what you think!
Last month- on the way to an engagement party for some dear friends, we made a side trip to Nadaeu 5 minutes before the store closed, and came out with this console table.

Good bones but I didn't like the finish. So OF COURSE a little PEACOCK BLUE paint fixes everything!
In process. Luke will tell you that I am a nightmare when I paint. I am very OCD about it. He is not allowed to touch it. I have a system. Sand, wipe, sand again, wipe down. VERY THIN COAT of paint, dry AT LEAST 8 hours. Paint again. let dry. lightly sand. Final coat. Sit for 8 hours and done!

And here it is in its new home. Sorry for the bad picture quality! And that lamp has to go I know- I am just looking for the perfect one to replace it!
My dad was appalled that I payed for a piece of driftwood, he was adamant that I could find the same thing in my backyard! Ahh the price of design.

And now here is what I need help with. The knobs that came with the console are BORING. So I found some perfect ones from Anthropologie. Sigh... amazing.
But I need 8 and they are about $10 a knob. That adds up. So I found some other options at Hobby Lobby but I can't decide if I like them. HELP! Do you like any of them, none of them??? Should I just go with the Anthropologie ones?


  1. I think you need to wait and come shopping at the Depot with me! They had A ROOM FULL OF KNOBS and pulls. I need some too. And they were all less than $2. I dont love the hobby lobby ones, but I am too frugal to pay $10 each! EEK!
