We’ve all see that segment on Sesame Street where the kids all sing, “One of these things is not like the others. One of these things just doesn’t belong. Can you tell me which thing is not like the others, by the time I finish my song…” And then they flash 4 pictures on the screen for you to spot the misfit. Well here’s our take on that…

We’ve posted 4 photos of kitchens we have remodeled… Can you find which one of these is not like the others?

Hint #1: it doesn’t involve cabinet design or wood species.

Hint #2: it doesn’t involve the flooring material.

Here’s an easy way to be green! 

Use vintage hardware on cabinets, desks, dressers, and more!  Some of our favorite places nearby that sell vintage hardware are Hunt and Gather in Edina, Zachary Ltd. in IMS, and Architectural Antiques in Northeast. Whether you’re looking for just a couple unique knobs for a child’s dresser, or you need a bunch of cabinet pulls for your kitchen, check out a vintage store near you!

On a recent outing, Holly and I found some fun little pieces to share with you…

These antique bin pulls have amazing details on them. All they need is a little TLC!


These glass knobs could really breathe new life into a little powder room. The red would be a nice pop of color!

We found these cute, tiny pieces in a box labeled "Lil' silver knobs". Aren't they just darling?

These vintage chrome and red pinstripe pieces came from a hardware store in Duluth. They were still in the original packaging and had never been used!
