the original ones are pretty awful... they're just plain wooden knobs and there was NO WAY that i was going to strip them and stain them and put them back on the desk!
i then began looking online... where i briefly fell in love with drawer pulls... mostly because i love the way they sound when they fall back into place... they're like tiny little door knockers! but alas, i decided that these were not what i wanted either!
eventually, it was etsy to the rescue... an obvious solution, but one i didn't think of at first! these beauties are small and delicate, and look like they will match the existing hardware, which makes me happy... they were originally a lot of 12, but i only needed six... after messaging the seller (DK General Store), she listed a set of six just for me, and now they are on their way!
...and just in time, too, because i think that this desk project will be done in the near future! hooray!
