Recycled curtain finials used as door knobs!

My husband and I are empty nesters and recently downsized into a patio home. Today I would like to share with you one of the many DIY projects we decided to implement in our house.

I love to up-cycle and recycle. For my pantry area I bought two old doors from the Old Town Architectural Salvage in Wichita Kansas. I applied an old world painting technique to the doors to make them look even older. (We will feature that DIY tutorial in the coming months).

Painting technique tutorial coming soon!

To finish off my doors, I up-cycled a pair of decorative finials I wasn’t using anymore to use as door knobs. Simple to do and very eclectic.

I think of door knobs and drawer handles as jewelry in a room.

The unique details are what make your house a home!
