a hardware hoarder

I've become quite the hardware hoarder.
These campaign style corner plaques were removed from an old coffee table I scrapped and have been on the prowl to find a great piece to add them to ever since.
Chippendale Batwing bail pulls are always nice.  (FYI: bail pulls are considered anything with a handle that hangs down in a reversed arch.)
These escutcheons have been laying around for quite some time, but I keep forgetting I have them so have yet to use them.
With a little tarnish remover these antique pulls will be great.
Hmm…so many possibilities.


  1. I am in LOVE with the oval key hole hardware! GORGEOUS!

  2. Too funny. Looks like my stash. I keep dreaming of the perfect vintage display cabinet to categorize all of them. Someday....

  3. I am jealous of your stash! Have you considered framing some of them as art? So many of them are gorgeous!

  4. Jealous! Have you ever considered selling the hardware? Vintage pieces can be so hard to come by...

  5. So i have a vintage dresser with some super odd spaced hardware drill holes. I wonder if you have any hardware that fit...if so would you be willing to sell?
    I would need 10 pulls.
    i think the holes are 5.25" apart but I can get a more accurate measurement.
    or would you know where to get some?

    1. I don't have that many of any! Check ebay, they have some great lots.
