So listen, never mistake my obsession with things like drawer pulls and paint colors, with my having no perspective on life. I know that there are bigger fish to fry, more pertinent battles to pick. I consider this more of a pastime, or a hobby, a fun way to make a rather menial, perhaps meaningless task – meaningful! For me it is often all about the hunt.
Disclaimers out of the way, here is my BIG hardware dilemma. As usual, I have a budget. I can’t imagine how much easier so many of these decisions would be if cost were not an issue, but I do know that all things are relative. And I am committed to the belief that for mE anyway, much of my creativity is borne of the necessity to make a little go a long way.
One thing I know I want are cup pulls. And simple cup pulls, no patterns or stamps, just simple classic pulls. I have them now on all of my kitchen doors and the are right at home in my Old Country House. They look great, work great and feel good on my hand.
I am terrible with too many choices, and so after some preliminary searching I settled into three websites – HOme Depot, House of Antique Hardware and Restoration Hardware. .

The Martha Stewart Line at Home Depot, has some nice choices especially in the polished Nickel collection.

I ordered some samples from House of Antiques Hardware. The pull above I got in polished Nickel and oil rubbed bronze. The Colonial pull is on back order. I was not impressed with the classic pull, too small. So my search is getting more narrow – Restoration Hardware is awesome. Lots of great choices:
