I’m making a jewelry cabinet for my wife, a project that has looooooong been on the honey-do list. If I don’t hurry up and get on it, she will end up buying one, and that would break my heart.
I’m having trouble sourcing two pieces of hardware:
1) A cabinet lock in nickel/chrome/stainless. The cabinet has two tall doors (10” wide by approx. 40” tall) on the front which she would like to be lockable. I have tried and tried searching but have not found locks that would work for this application in a non-yellow color. I can’t even find a simple keyhole escutcheon in non-yellow brass.
2) Necklace hangers in nickel/chrome/stainless. This can be as simple as silver colored pegs or hooks, but again I’m having trouble sourcing anything decent.
She has a thing against brass hardware, as you can tell. This is a very special project and I’m also trying to make it as “high-end” as my abilities will allow, but having trouble finding hardware to match. Any help would be appreciated.
