Insta-Style: Doorknob

I am back with another installment of Insta-Style. If you are new here, I started a weekend series where I share a simple project for which no tutorial is needed.

You may not own the same items I show in the posts, but I am hoping that the ideas will inspire you to look at everything around you with new eyes and ask yourself…”what if?” to come up with your own Insta-Style decorating ideas.

What do you get when you put a doorknob and a pencil or pen together?


A styling pen or pencil holder.


I have my favorite purple glass doorknob with a purple pen on my desk.

You can see the previous posts in the series, here:  Insta-Style Posts

I made the Rolodex on my desk a few years ago. Here is the link to the post I wrote about it:  Rolodex In Artful Order
