A little transformation


When Carol at Country Roads asked me
What are you going to do with those?

I looked at my box of
old,
rusty,
door knobs
and realized I had no idea.

But it was too late to leave them behind,
I had already fallen in love.
















I thought about them for a coupe of hours until
inspiration hit me and I'm happy with results.
What do you think?

Happy Monday!!

Darling and matched with a vintage photo...perfectly sweet.

I may have to pick up a few doorknobs at the flea market and see them in a new way!

Very pretty! I made some with just buttons but will have to try some jewels as well, thanks for the inspiration!

I love these. I have seen picture holders made out of old doorknobs but they were very plain. I just love how you added all the bling to these. Great transformation. I have a couple of doorknobs in my stash of stuff....want to guess what I'm going to do with them?

What a lovely idea. Vintage doorknobs are always so lovely and I'm happy when I find a crystal one. Yours are wonderful and so are the baby pics.

Oh, my gosh! You are unbelievable clever, Marcela.I was wondering myself! I am thinking "Somerset Life"...you really should send these in for publication. They are just as clever and as attractive as can be!
