The Greatest Drawer Pulls of All Time
So I read a home decorating article that described drawer pulls and knobs as the “jewelry” of the kitchen. Isn’t that a pretty way of thinking about it? We’ve chosen very plain doors and counters for our kitchen-to-be because I like that clean, austere look. But the right knob could change everything.
The article made me want to have the greatest drawer pulls of all time. The only problem was that I had no idea where to find such drawer pulls.
My first dream drawer pull was in the shape of a racing broom. I’m using the term “dream drawer pull” because it turns out that no one makes a drawer pull in the shape of a Harry Potter broom. I could get small broom charms and super glue them to a plain handle, but no one makes handles in the shape of brooms. Why not? Someone, get on this.
I thought the handles would compliment the golden snitch I’m planning on hanging from the ceiling along with the Deathly Hallows over the kitchen table.
But fine, I could let go of the idea of the racing broom drawer pulls. (And instead hang a six-foot broom over the door, right, Josh?)
I then moved onto steampunk gear knobs. I’ve been considering turning the pantry doors into a Tardis, so this would go with that look. (Oh, Josh, I may have failed to tell you about that plan.) These knobs existed, but I need about 55 of them, and you could only purchase one or two from each seller on Etsy. I want everything to match, so that didn’t work.
Finally, I moved onto octopus drawer pulls. These also exist. I know that I have never expressed a great love of octopuses, but octopus knobs feel right. Unfortunately, the octopuses I found were really expensive. I mean, considering they’re octopuses and not racing brooms.
Which brought me back to square one.
There is this place that will custom make ceramic drawer pulls and knobs, and you can place any image on the handle. (Racing brooms!) The only issue is that I really love the look of silver metal, and I don’t really love the look of ceramic.
So… uh… any whimsical silver metal drawer pulls or knobs you can suggest? Maybe going with a book theme. Or a Harry Potter theme. Or sea creatures. And not that expensive considering we need 55 of them…
