So earlier today when Readymade made mention of using these handles as holders for small items like scissors and paint brushes by mounting them to the wall, it all came clear.
Our new mission is to head back to the restore and pick up a piece of peg board and 50 or so handles. We'd like to attach them to the pegboard by using small screws (which are easily found there as well) and then hang the whole thing on the wall. We might hit them with a coating of spray paint first, as they aren't as pretty as the Restoration Hardware handles pictured above, but we're thinking a little pop of color might do some good.
We've been looking for a great way to store craft supplies and even if some things (like paint brushes and pens) aren't able to be held by the handles, we can always add an "S hook" and an Asker container to the grid as well.
