Cabinet Hardware Gurus - Please help!
Oh, this kitchen. So we're made some serious (if slow) progress. Cabinets are painted, bottom doors are hung, floor is replaced, above-range microwave is in, crown is painted and cut for installation, ugly wood soffit is gone and replaced with painted sheet rock, countertops are measured and being quoted.
So. We started putting the drawers back in and came across a problem. It appears that when the cabinets were originally ordered and installed in 1982, something was done backwards. The extra space (for hardware clearance) in the corner was mistakenly placed next to the refrigerator. Therefore, we have a drawer in the corner that won't open when its neighbor has hardware installed.
The clearance that we have is 13/16", meaning we need a knob or handle with a projection of 3/4" or less. WHERE DO I FIND THAT?? I have come across absolutely nothing that is less than 7/8", and even those are hard to come by. Most everything is 1" or more!
I'm already angry and frustrated that I have to return my beautiful handles. I am wishing we had not thrown away the old hardware already (which was super old and gross) because it just barely made the clearance. Perhaps we could have sprayed it to look like oil-rubbed bronze.
Since discovering this issue, I've gotten burned (twice now) by ordering something online that states it has a certain projection, but then it arrives and it's bigger! If anyone knows of anything with a 3/4" projection or less, preferably in oil-rubbed bronze, but I'll paint it if I have to, PLEASE help me! I kind of don't even care what it looks like at this point. I only need seven. *Sigh*
