New Nobs(z) in the kitchen

Every now and then I get the "look" from my wife that tells me I'm spending too much time on my hobbies and not enough with the family or on chores around the house.

In an effort to gain some faction with the "Wife Consortium" I decided I would tackle a house related project that has been on the back burner for a while. We've wanted to replace the handles, nobs and hinges on our kitchen cabinets and drawers since we moved in (two years ago).

The wife however was not impressed with my first selection. Plain Nob, nothing too fancy.

So I set out to "WOW" her with a Shiny option. She felt it was too small compared to the old nobs and worried that our pants would snag on it.

I had one option left and hoped it would be an acceptable compromise. MEGA-Nob!

She liked the look of the Mega-Nob and was very excited about swapping out all of the old Nobs for Mega-Nobz until she saw the price per Nob. Sadly we need 30 new Nobz and the price point per Mega-Nob is just too much.

Back to the drawing board.
