When I bought my house, it came with a door bell, which essentially meant a giant set of really, really chimes. For a 640 square foot house, this felt a tab bit excessive. After all, no matter where I am in the house, I can hear someone knock on the door! I removed the doorbell, but thought it would be really cute to have a stylish door knocker instead, thus kicking off yet another search! There are soooo many amazing door knockers out there that I just had to share my findings with you guys.
