Well Now… How About These Vintage Glass Door Knobs!

Yes, we are in the thick of our move. Boxes are being packed, shuttled south, and more are being packed as we go. The beauty of a progressive move is the new home has a chance to sink in before it even gets started. This…

Caught by Surprise… 200 Posts!

Wow! Anniversaries, they come and they go. I missed my one-year blogging celebration. Um, that was back in July! And now I’m realizing that Monday was my 200th post since this journey began. Can I just say, I was caught by surprise? In the beginning…

DIY With Vintage Glass Door Knobs

Glass door knobs are beautiful, whether they’re old or new, but there’s definitely no comparison between the two. There’s just a look and feel to the vintage knobs that make you want to linger for a split second longer to soak their sensation in.

Do you see what I mean? Isn’t this one spectacular? I love the way it’s cut… the shadow sparkles like a diamond.

They come is all shapes and sizes…

And a rainbow of brilliant colours.

They’re so pretty, so cheerful and fun… Who wouldn’t want a bouquet of them?

And since green is one of my favorite colours…

I couldn’t resist including this emerald antique gem.

I love all the DIY ideas for repurposing yesterday’s jewellery of function into d├ęcor treasures of today.

Like this practical coat rack.

Isn’t this creative? I like that the original plates are mounted with the knobs for more authentic character.

Here’s another variation without the plates…

I think this wall paper adds the perfect punch.

Here’s a similar idea for storing purses…

What a great idea to mix up the vintage knobs like this.

And this design also makes a great jewellery hanger for necklaces…

Source

This idea might go on my DIY project list… I just need to decide where I would hang it first.

Here’s another cool idea for storing jewellery.

Did you guess that this was a cutlery organizer in it’s first life?

And how about this wine stopper?

Source

I SO heart this! It feels glamorous in a casual chic kind of way.

The sliver of black you see here is a mini chalkboard made from an old cupboard door.

What a perfect addition to a kitchen or an office space, or wherever you would place your message board. And doesn’t the glass knob give it the perfect finishing touch?

Speaking of office spaces…

How unique is this for a message holder? It would make a great paper-weight too!

If you just wanted to leave the glass door knob as is…

Source

It would also work for a paper-weight… or a knife rest… as long as it didn’t roll!

I saved this one for last because I think it’s so much fun.

Can you guess what this is?

If you guessed garden ornament I wouldn’t argue with you, because it really is pretty peeking out among the green. But this is actually functional too. It’s a hose guide so the hose doesn’t harm the plants as it’s being moved around the garden. Isn’t this a neat idea?

I could put pictures on here forever. There are so many amazing vintage glass door knobs out there, and a ton of great ideas for how to repurpose them… My dream would be to find a stash like this.

So I could enjoy them just the way they are until I decided what project to tackle first.

What would you do with a vintage glass door knob? Would you use it to open a door? Or would you repurpose it into something fabulous and new?

Thanks for stopping by!
