Living Room Credenza - update

My credenza arrived! If you recall from my first blog post, I chose the Juliette Credenza from High Street Market. Kelly Robson, a co-owner of High Street Market, provided excellent customer service regarding my order and delivery of this piece, something I find so rare these days. I love so many items at High Street Market and it was a true pleasure doing business with Kelly. I am still working on the styling of the credenza and whether or not I want to put mirrors or something inside the doors so you can't see what's inside, but like I've mentioned before, my living room is a work in progress.

Without further ado, here is my new credenza:
While the credenza is a bit darker than I was expecting (compared to the picture provided at the time online), it fits the space perfectly, I love the lattice doors, and most importantly it holds the stereo and the kid's toys and books, with some room to spare. I love that the kids can put their things in and just close the doors, it makes my living room feel so much less cluttered.

However, me being me, there was something about the knobs that was bothering me (kind of like what I went through with my bedside tables). I thought perhaps they are too plain. Here is a close up of one of the doors:
Here is another view:
I started thinking about what knobs I would like/what would work, gold? silver? leather? decorative? Then I decided on the perfect knob, a round glass or acrylic ball. It is the right choice for me/the living room, because it is understated yet adds a touch of sparkle and brings lightness to the credenza. So, here is my new credenza, with my new knobs:

Sometimes it is the little things that make all the difference. I love my new credenza with the acrylic knobs, I think it is simply beautiful.

ps - you can find round glass/acrylic knobs in many places, I found a package of 4 acrylic round knobs at my local Target store, for $18. The package comes with screws that were too short for these doors and the screws for the original knobs were too long, so I bought 4 new screws at Home Depot, size #8-32 x 1-1/4", they worked perfectly.
