Your handles and knobs are about to LOVE you!
If you look around any room in your home, you will see that there are many door handles, drawer pulls, and knobs on your furniture that are calling out to be addressed. A great way to do it is to embellish them to draw attention to the piece or to carry through your decor theme onto a particular item! Whether you’ve bought a brand new piece of furniture or are restoring an old item, decorating the drawer pulls is an easy way to customize its look. Depending on the method that you choose, you can match virtually any decor style or theme and come up with a one-of-a-kind look for your dresser, cabinet, or desk!
Of course, you can paint, decoupage or fabric cover the hardware, but what about gluing or epoxy jewels, shells, or stones directly to them? You can add ribbons and bows to knobs to create a cute, more feminine feel. Rope, twine, and bolts emulate a nautical, industrial, or rustic theme. Adhering crystals, pearls, or beads evoke glamorous Hollywood era. But, for a traditional, classic look, add tassels or leather belts and buckles!
SECRET: Don’t stop at individual furniture pieces. Go into your bathroom or kitchen and look at your cabinetry! Hmmm....
