Weathered Beauties

I fell in love with these vintage lead numbered drawer pulls the moment I discovered them at a garage sale. They were nestled in the back of a drawer.

I love the beautifully weathered surfaces.  I'll be incorporating them into future projects.

Here's a recent project I completed using a salvaged piece of wood, and, vintage weathered hooks.

I transferred this Graphic's Fairy image onto the wood.  No painting on my part. The paint was already there. I just distressed it with some heavy duty sanding.  I cleaned the surface before I transferred the image, and, distressed it a bit more.  Then, I gave it a hand rubbed wax finish.

The vintage hooks were another garage sale find, and, a nice compliment.

I attached hangers on both sides.

I think I'll make a few more of these.

See ya soon.


  1. Fabulous numbered drawer pulls. Great job with the hook plaque. You really have the weathered look down to a science. Creative Bliss...

  2. Those drawer pulls with the numbers and great patina are wonderful!

    Hope you are taking some time to relax and enjoy Summer:-)


  3. Great find on those numbered knobs, Rosemary. I know you will come up with some great uses for them. Your board/hanger came out great. It's nice to find something that doesn't need a lot of work beforehand to get the project going.

  4. Ooh love the coat rack. It's too pretty to cover up.

    Will you be making more of your crowns?


  5. good find those numbered drawer knobs, they look just like your kind of stuff

  6. I would have grabbed them too! Wonderful find, Rosemary.


  7. You have such a magnetism for wonderful things with numbers on them! I can't wait to see what you do with them.

  8. Oh Rosemary I so love the vintage numbers, so Anthropolgie like! Love your shelf with the hooks.
