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!
