Recycle Repurpose Reuse....old door knobs

I'll start by saying "wish I had a fiver for every time a person walked into my shop with their friend and announced..."Oh, I can do that" or "oh YOU can make that's so easy"
Yep, I kid you not....."they" say it OUT LOUD in my retail shop.
Now I never ever stake claim to ANY of my creations....lets face it the truth is...nothing is ever "New". My things are made from objects on hand (trust me I have a HUGE stash of stuff that will have a use someday). I have difficulty throwing things away...and many a time I have been called out by friends when I am about to toss something in the trash and I give it the "second look over" to think "can I reuse this in some way".
BUT seriously, out loud in my shop......STOP.
one word R E S P E C T.
I work very very hard to make enough (not there yet but soon) to take take care of us. It's really hard.
So trust me ladies and I say this with L O V E 
I knoooooo you can make it (cause I did) but this is my business so please take those comments outside. Talk amongst yourselves when I can't actually hear it. And please pleaseee create....copy, make...I don't fact I am super happy if I inspire you. Just don't insult me for trying to do what you are not yet doing....
(Please see last post for tirade disclaimer)
Soooo I needed a coat hook for my entranceway in this old Victorian I live in. 
(one day Ill post some pics cause if I ever get to finishing decorating it will be pretty cool.)
And I thought....hummmm old door knobs (check) crusty shabby switch plates (check) and secret ingredient (epoxy shhhh) ...and waah laaa
