This is the new Pottery Barn bedside table. I'm not showing you a larger view as the room is still in progress (and the bed isn't even made)!
What I did want to share are the new knobs (from Lee Valley) I'm trying out:
The tables arrived with ugly wooden knobs, but I decided to swap them out for something more era-appropriate. Since the table has a vaguely Gustavian feel, I sought something neoclassical and found these round brass pulls that I love!:
But there are two problems with these pulls: since they are tiny, they're really annoying to pull open compared to a regular knob. Also, the screws they came with them are too long, so I need to get really short ones so they can be screwed snug (something else to do!).
I also bought little glass knobs to try (below). They don't work as well as the brass ones with the antiqued finish. I'm still undecided about painting the tables, perhaps white or gray. They came with this antiqued finish in a cream colour. I hated it initially, but it's growing on me! If I painted them white, the glass knobs would be quite pretty:
I may go shopping for a few more options, but I do love the brass pulls. I probably should hold off until I decide on painting, shouldn't I? I am terribly impatient!
What do you think?
