    Default Where to Buy Hardware for My Tack Trunk??

    My (very very very) wonderful boyfriend built me a beautiful tack trunk for Christmas. It is everything I could have ever imagined and more (bandage lid, sliding tray, grooming tote, etc.).

    He held off finishing it and picking out hardware because he knows how particular I am. I picked out a gorgeous General Finishes Gel Stain but I have no clue what to do about hardware.

    I need hinges, a latch, handles, and possibly corner caps that are nice quality and matching, but will not cost me $$$$. I found a beautiful set of handles but at $60 a piece I feel like there must be a more economical option.

    Does anyone know where I can find nice hardware online?

    I would prefer to find oil-rubbed bronze however I also like brass as long as it isn't high-gloss and plastic looking.

    Any ideas?

    I don't know, I got mine at Home Depot, and some friends of mine got me a nice plaque for the top:

    What a beautiful plaque and a thoughtful gift. Your trunk is gorgeous. Perhaps I should rethink dark would and bright brass? Your trunk looks very sharp and the brass accents it without being a distraction.
