vote on hardware...


Long story short....I had the original paint color for the buffet darkened a bit.
The amazing professionals a Guiry's tweaked it to get a match to Precious Emerald.
Several coats later (seriously, I lost count) it is much better!
Unfortunately, the color in my photos still doesn't read true at all! 

Behr - Precious Emerald  

From the moment I saw this dumpster dive on the sidewalk I knew the style was
 perfect for making a statement with an abundance of hardware.
Since the piece was free I don't mind spending money on the hardware.
I chose the Metrik from Ikea at a great price $5.99/package of 2.  


Due to the style the handles don't have to be functional, which allows them to
be positioned laying flat vs the standard upright placement.
My stylish girlfriend, Jennifer @ Dimples & Tangles, helped me come up with some
ideas and now I'm completely undecided. 

Here's where you come in... which is your favorite?
Here's an overall shot to give you an idea...(not that it matters, but it's actually 9 drawers).

 
#1
 #2
 #3
 #4
 #5
 #6


Thanks for weighing in with your opinions everyone...stay tuned!

Wow.... I'm impressed with all of your combinations alone! It's really hard to choose but I'd likely go with number 2 to keep it clean looking. I worry that some of the other choices will be overpowering in quantity. I'm sure whatever you do will turn out amazing.... it always does! Good luck!

#6 just seems perfect

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

i like number 2, but definitely one of the first 3- i think the other options may end up looking like too much hardware the way the drawers line up.

gina said...

I vote #1 then #3. Cannot wait to see it finished. What a find!

Luci @Bungalow At Home said...

Great combinations but I agree with the others that the last 3 might be too much and for some reason my eye keeps going back to #3. This is going to look awesome and I think darkening the paint was a good call..

elaine said...

i think 6. very creative. i love the color and the hardware!

Danielle said...

Love number 6. x

Cathy Wall said...

I am continually inspired by your thinking, love these ideas! My fave is #3 just the right amount of interest and not overpowering in the room or on the piece.

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

#3 is my fav. and then #6

Denise @ frazzled JOY said...

Although I love the design of #6 I agree with some of the others that it might be too busy (and the frugal side of me is also thinking this will call for twice as many). So my vote is for #4. I like the clean look and the illusion that the pieces are connected. Lovely!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Who knew you could come up with so many different ways to lay it out! : ) I like #2.

Nancy said...

Very clever ideas! I like # 3. Less is more I feel since there are so many lines on the front of the cabinet. It's looking great Pam!

Well, since you asked, #2 is my favorite...I also like #5...but fear it will be overpowering! Good luck! ;)

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

Looks like you had a furry helper for #2. :) I'm more confused now than ever! I'd have to see all the drawers together, but I'm going against the flow and think with your simple, clean piece that you can load it up with hardware and let that shine. But, like I said, I'd have to see it laid out all together. I can't vote, any one of them would be great! BTW, big surprise, Precious Emerald was one of the swatches I had taped up to consider! Great color!

Peggy said...

Definitely number 3! As much as I love the the last three selections they would definitely be too busy for the number of drawers you have. The third choice is definitely clean and classic!

Have a wonderful week!

Katie {Miss Dixie} said...

#6 or #3! Love your choice of hardware Pam!

Emily said...

Cool choices. I think I like #3 the best. Can't wait to see it completed. Frani

Andrea said...

I like #4 or #6. So many options. I love this hardware!

Patty Day @Pattys Epiphanies said...

I like #2, but also go with #3. I go with the others that would like to see the the entire piece with the six choices to really make the best decision.
BTW...What is your favorite?

Amanda said...

holy moly so many choices. But after scrolling through them a few times my eye keeps going to #6. But I think any of them will be amazing!!

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

Pam, you just rock my world. There, I said it.
All these ideas that you come up with, they just amaze me all the time!!!!
The color came out BEAUTIFULLY - it's so rich and gorgeous!
I'm leaning towards 3 and can't wait to see what you choose!!!!!

Leslie said...

Pam, I'm agreeing with everyone else. Keep it simple.. I'd go with #2.

Anonymous said...

I opt for choice #3 - simple, clean and repeats the overall pattern of the piece. Have fun whatever you choose!

I love #5!

Calypso In The Country said...

Pam, I love the color. I think I am leaning towards #3. Can't wait to see what you choose!

Marty said...

I think I like #6, since the hardware is centered...

KATHY said...

I love #2. Can't wait to see which one you choose.

Countrymouse said...

I'm going to watch on this one. I like too many of the choices, and I don't think you can really go wrong with so many of them. I love the shade of green.

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

I like number 2 and 6....Love the color...I recently went out and bought a pretty emerald green jacket....love it!...cannot wait to see what you decide on!

#6

Lori said...

Such a beautiful green. Given that the hardware will be x9, my eye keeps landing on 6 and then 3. I never would have thought of that many cool combinations.

Number 3! Easy on the eyes and not too busy looking

Samantha Horseman said...

Love options 3 and 6! and love the color! Can't wait to see the finished product :)

I like number 2.

Bervgirl said...

I love #6 the best because they are centered but not too fussy! You have such amazing taste...I know you'll make the very best choice!

penny said...

I really like 1 and 6...they're very similar just twice as much hardware in #6. I'd have to see them in person to really decide between them. For handles facing each other (rather than away from each other as in 1 & 6), I really like #2.

I don't think you can go wrong with any of those 3 (or probably any of them for that matter). It's going to be beautiful.
