right under your nose

The doorknobs pictured could make a punchy, changeable coat rack and coordinate with a lot of different home styling.  Me?  Turn them orange.  Contemporary?  Paint them white.  Into shabby chic?  Play up the original finish.  Practical, and pretty.

Lately, a lot of my time has been spent preparing and packing for an upcoming move.  Although it's a very minor move in the scheme of things, it has been making a big impact on the way I look at my objects.  Sometimes, the best decorations happen to be the most practical (like a beautiful wooden box for laundry quarters) while other times, the most appropriate decor is something you already have at home, but repurposed.  For example, I have a collection of vintage Jadeite dishware; perfect for both a tea party, and the dining room wall!
