Then I was thinking to trade out the latch. But after looking closer, it was built into the door and putting in something new would require drilling a hole and well... I decided it looked charming! And I found out this type of latch is a vintage "window turn latch. And they were used on cupboards and closet doors quite often back in the day.
Lastly, it was still looking a little... blah to me. So I decided to add a little embellishment by way of hand-painting along the edges. My inspiration for the design was this dresser by Miss Mustard Seed.
Linking up tonight with Miss Mustard Seed!
