A Little Glam For a Little Girl

Yes, I'm still working on our 5-year-old daughter's bedroom but with the massive decorating challenge I've taken on, this is going to take a while.

Today I decided to inject a little glamour into her surroundings.  Since her room doesn't have an overhead light (yes, 120-year-old homes have their challenges), I'm not able to install the cliche chandelier in her bedroom ceiling.  So to add a little glam, I turned to eBay and found these gorgeous vintage glass knobs with all their original hardware still intact.


They are the perfect size to dress up the four doors on her double closets (I know, the photo only shows one of her two closets but you know what I mean).

Boring Before

Glam After!

For just a few dollars per door, I've added lots of sparkle to this side of her bedroom but I didn't stop the glam there!

to be continued.......

I love the crystal doorknobs. We have those throughout this old house of ours. It brings out a personality that only an old house has. I can't wait to see your baby girl's room.

I always admire your appreciation for all things beautiful and your willingness to bring that beauty into your life.

Your daughter will have an even lovelier room when you're done with it.

Those are adorable! We have been looking for hardware for the new cabinet. So far, nothing! :) We need to go to Lowe's but have a busy weekend ahead of us. Maybe the following week.

I grew up in a house with glass doorknobs. Didnt really even think about them then but it does add a warm charm.

When I first saw the pic I thunk it was earrings.
