upgrade.

this post will be short and sweet, but i wanted to show you what i got today...

remember the mirrored side tables from target that i got a couple of weeks ago? i love them, but i don't love the cheap-o knobs that came on them. talk about making something look like the low-ticket item that it was...

they were even plastic, i do believe.

anyway, i was going to get simple glass knobs, but when i saw these new beauties from anthropologie tonight, i thought they'd be the best fix for me! i really love them.

(please forgive the dusty top!)

here is what they look like in person and in daylight:

they look like cut geodes, but they're just porcelain. at only $6 a pop, they were a quick, pretty fix.

  1. It does make them look more expensive. We have some coasters from Anthropologie that are similar to the knobs and they are beautiful.

  2. They look great!!! I have those same mirrored tables but mine came with a glass knob last year. They are great tables. Do you have have an e-mail...I am tackling some chippendale dining room chairs and would love some advice from the painting master. I bought a reasonable sprayer thinking it would make the job easier but I think it made it harder. I would love to send you a pic and get some advice on what steps to take! I have been an avid follower of yours and love your work!
