#4 – Detail of Kitchen handles from other house


My friend over at Ranch Handy posted about this Kitchen (not hers) quite some time ago, but I’m not sure she ever found these handles…aren’t they cool?

I also LOVE the knotty pine cabinet doors. We had a ton of this in our old house – knotty pine built ins and we loved it. Even when we ripped out a wall with closets between two very small rooms, we carefully saved all the lumber.

The new owners were upset when they bought the house and there was all this “trash” – the carefully saved wood and some extra siding (which had been discontinued). Aren’t people funny?

So, does anyone have a resource for the handles?
