Not Without the Internet

Needed hardware for the sliding doors and levers for the other interior doors. Looked at Home Depot and Lowes and was not impressed with what was there.
Went home to do my homework and found everything I wanted on the Internet

Door hardware: Black has been on the wish list for a long time and I was not ready to give up. Found one model by Baldwin at handlesets.com that I think fit our style. I also got edge pull and flush pull in black for the sliding doors.
For an old door between the living room and the new porch, I got matching black hinges.
Baldwin 5445.PRIV
Lever for the interior doors from Baldwin.

Yesterday, I ordered floor registers for the three new vents from floorregisterresources.com. I hope these are as nice as they look on the photo.


Finally, I found my favorite paint! It is entirely based on flax oil and pigment. We used it (but another brand) for ALL woodwork in previous house, and it actually smells nice! The Allb├Ąck paint comes from southern Sweden and the flax has grown not far from where I grew up. Neat!
