A Pale Green

If you take a look at the drawing of the cabinet I am having built for my kitchen, you will see a small, vintage style flour bin on the left side of the counter top.

I have the hardware lined up for the cabinet hinges. I have the drawer pull,  and I'm working on the metal door latches. In the back of my mind, I always knew what I wanted for the flour bin.

When I bought my previous condo, there was a box of salvaged hardware in the basement storage area.  Some of it was leftovers from the kitchen cabinets....and some of it was just random.  I took the box with me when I moved.

The wallpaper that will eventually go into my kitchen is a green & red.  In the back of my mind, I remembered seeing a minty green, glass knob in the box. Tonight I went down to my basement, dug up that box, hunted through it, was was relieved to find the little glass knob.  Green.

Funny how things work out, huh?

I've had that wallpaper for 6 yrs now :-) I have to admit I am really liking the green knob.
