We had been considering this recently, just to freshen up or update the house a little bit. The hardware is starting to look a little dated. I counted the number of door knobs, hinges, light fixtures and pieces of bath hardware that would need to be replaced. After doing the math, we decided to live with it a while longer.

Yes--I love the antique crystal or glass knobs and have added them to our doors to replace the modern looking metal ones.

No I haven't but I'd like to. Baldwin makes some beautiful acorn door hinges that I'd love to have.

The only thing I have replaced before is light switch covers. I did not do this in the place I am in now, but when I move I might put them back on.

When we were first married and pretty poor, we did this in our first home...and made it a "year long" project. Every paycheck, we bought three or four hinges and just replaced them as we went along. It actually became about a two year project...but about half way through, they stopped making the hinges and knobs we were using, so we had to find another that looked close enough to pass!
