Old vs. New - You Vote!

We have been debating whether or not to use the original "Republic Steel" emblem from the front of our kitchen cabinets, or replace it with our own custom piece. As much as I love reusing original pieces, there's something nice about putting your own artistic touch into every little project throughout the house.

A friend of ours from work offered to route us a shiny, new custom piece to replace the old, dingy, original Republic Steel piece (below).



Don't worry - if we decide to go with the new routed emblem (design below), we still plan on incorporating the original piece somewhere. It just won't be front and center under the newly re-finished sink. Thoughts?

as long as your incorporating the old somewhere i think it's sweet to go w/ a new custom one...
