The next one is in our bedroom: it's a glass (maybe crystal?? how do I tell?) door knob from our very first apartment after we were married and is from the early 1900;s It had broken off of the door and when they replaced it with an ugly, new brass one I kept it. It brings back so many memories.
Anyway...I had been wanting to display it somehow, so here is what I came up with:
I found a scrap of black and white toile fabric, a little letter "S" from Hobby Lobby painted black and a frame from a yard sale that I also spray painted black. I had to cut a little hole through the fabric and hot glue the knob to the backboard of the frame so it would stay. My inspiration for the hanging "S" came from Blue Castle ~I loved hers. So much that I may even paint my "S" red to stand out a little more~what do you think?
There are my little touches of toile~there is a whole party of it going on over at Pretty Organized Palace~go join the fun!

Wait! Something about that "S" was really bothering me~too shiny, too much black, too something. So, I tried red spray paint. It still didn't fit. So I started wiping the red off, which took off some black as well, and I actually loved the old, weathered look it gave it. It seemed to fit the door knob. So, here is the makeover of the makeover.
