This post was unexpectedly inspired by some hashtags I played on Instagram. I put together some pictures of my collections and thought I should share here too.
What is it about vintage door knobs, keys, locks and antique hardware that fascinates so many of us? The attention to detail and artistry in each piece is just something that isn't found in modern homes.
I've been collecting vintage for over twenty years and door knobs for about 10 years now and I love displaying them throughout my home in my "junky chic" style.
Collecting door knobs led to key plates, keys and various other pieces of antique and vintage hardware.
What I love best about flea market style is creating a unique look that simply can't be replicated in mass produced store bought decor. This is especially true with holiday decorating. I am always using old door knobs and keys holiday vignettes and year round.
Sometimes I just play around with creative ways to display my hardware hoards. You might find a single "specimen" in a vignette, like this lovely green lock.
Wherever I use them and whenever I find them they are definitely my bliss. What about you? Are you a door knob lover too?
