If there’s one thing you definitely need, but had no idea you needed, it is octopus door handles.
Honestly, i had no idea these cool creations even existed. A dear friend of mine sent me some photos and said she thought I would like them.
She was right.
These are so cool! And I’m not the only one to think so. Judging from the reviews left by happy customers, it seems plenty of people really enjoy the concept.
If you’ve been following this page for a while, then you’ll know that this goes right along our water-obsessed selves. There were mermaid tights, tentacle shoes, and of course studies on why the beach is good for you.
Each door handle is hand crafted, and unique. They are made from sculpting Epoxy plastic putty over a solid metal core & metal back plate. And they are weatherproof, so you can use them inside or outside you abode.
The brass set seen above will run you around $160 (USD) and comes with a keyhole so you can either use them for aesthetic purposes and use one set for both the left and right sides, or you could add your own locking mechanism and use the set to complete your front door look with one stellar tentacle handle.
Which is exactly what one customer decided to do, as seen in the above image.
Another customer used the handles for their kitchen cupboard. The neat idea can be seen below:
The Etsy shop also sells bathroom sets, which include a lock. To be honest with you, I am seriously considering ordering a set. I need a new door handle and this would be so completely perfect.
These bathroom sets are also available in tin, if the black ones won’t fit your theme.
These handles are standard size, and would look remarkable on any door.
So, even if you’re not a nautical person who is obsessed with all things oceanic, you may know someone who is. And these would make a great gift for them. Or me.
Be sure to check out the Carnsore Point shop on Etsy for these awesome door handles.
