They were the cheapest bronze knobs Home Depot carried at $7.99 a pop. Multiply that by 1 million doorknobs and it would cost us like $7.9M for doorknobs. Sigh. Ok, so I moved on to silver knobs like this:
Turns out the satin chrome were $10.97 a piece. This made us start to think about just spray painting the knobs we had, but honestly, we're pretty bad at the whole panting things and making them look like we spent $1M on it. It usually looks like we went to the carnival and bought the worst looking painted crap we could find.
When we thought all was lost, Mr. P spotted a lot of used brass knobs on Craigslist which he snagged for $20. While it wasn't our ideal color, it was a good, cheap way that we could replace all of the damaged knobs.
Have you replaced any knobs in your house? Did you score a deal?
