Another Post about Door Knobs!


You all know that I’ve cleaned up the hardware on the doors in our bedroom throughout the spring. They look amazing and I love them but I still had one nagging problem, the main door set didn’t close/latch properly. It also didn’t have a lock on it, and certain bedrooms need a lock (don’t get all grossed out on me now). The time had come for us to replace the bedroom door hardware with something more functional.

I had received a Rejuvenation catalog (lighting and house parts) in the mail awhile back and it was the first place I looked when trying to find modern a reproduction of the vintage door hardware I was seeking. If you have an old house and haven’t checked out their site you need to! They specialize in vintage lighting reproductions, but in my opinion their hardware selection is where it’s really at. Restoration hardware – get out of here! I ordered up a new oil rubbed bronze plate with a thumb turn and a new mortise privacy lock to go with it. I did have to carve out a bit of space in my bedroom door for the new lock to fit but it was no thang, and within an hour we were up and running. Not only did our bedroom door now close properly, it also locked. Score 1 for the grownups!

    When I stepped into the showroom, I felt like I was in Provence.
    The scent of lavender and the sound of running water from the antique limestone fountain along with the incredible selection of French garden antiques were really impressive. If you are looking for very large garden ornaments, French planters, etc. this is the showroom to visit. A total of 15,000 square feet of the most incredible French garden antiques, French limestone fountains, fireplace mantels and the most selective collection of planters from France with immediate availability. Each piece feels real, the atmosphere is so calming and rural. A true and unique gem to be found in West Palm Beach! Their website is http://www.authenticprovence.com
