Hardware. It sounds so 'masculine'!
... Until you think about interior design, decorating or furniture refinishing. In this world, it means "pretty"! Of course that was said in my most sing-songy voice, because what I am talking about is fancy handles, flowery knobs and shiny pulls... or as I like to call it, jewelry for your furniture.
Each time I reimagine a piece, a part of that is deciding what the bling should be. Should I keep the original
jewelry hardware, refinish it as well or replace it outright?
In the past I've run from store to store trying to find just the right hardware to finish off the look I've dreamed up. It can take a lot of driving, parking, fuel and energy so finally I decided to carry hardware in the boutique in the hope that having it alongside Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™, paint supplies, decor and flowers means other DIYers won't have to travel to all ends of the city (or farther!) to find the good stuff. Who doesn't love one-stop shopping?
Our first shipment of knobs has arrived and we'll be adding more over the coming weeks! Of course our Blog and Facebook followers get a first look. Here are a few of the styles we have in stock:
So now dressing up your furniture AND your home is as easy as stopping in to say hi at Apple Box Boutique!
See you there!
