Keep those old door knobs

Our house that we're remodeling (slowly) has all those old dark steel door knobs, No not the real intricate beautiful ones - the one cheap flat ones from the 30's.  But their better than some of that new tinny brass stuff they sell now, and I didn't want to fork out the money to replace them all, so we painted them.  I think they turned out ok.  We're painting all the registers as well.  They don't even make these old heavy steel one anymore.  If we needed to replace one I think we'd have to go to a salvage yard.  Anyway I think they turned out nice.  Poor, sad, neglected door knob - New, shinny, silver door knob  : )
 
Kind of cool how I flip flopped those so they face each other.  Like I planned that - not!
