Unique Hardware on Etsy
August 12, 2014
I was working on a dresser makeover yesterday, I inherited a plain Jane dresser from Matt’s late grandmother and I want to repurpose it so I added some trim to the face and will prime and paint it later this week. I have a thing for giving furniture a facelift, I love to modernize something second hand and give it new life. I frequently pin inspirational pieces with great knobs or pulls; it’s a universal truth that unique hardware will make cabinetry or a piece of furniture shine, case in point:
I pinned this photo months ago, it was captured by Zeke Ruelas and I’ve been fixated on those Asian motif gold pulls ever since. I found a similar style on Etsy and when they arrived they had a duller brass finish so to brighten them up I gave the hardware a dusting of a favorite spray paint, Krylon’s Gold Leaf, the same I’ve used here and here.
I’m also crushing on gemstone knobs right now, jewelry for your cabinets! How cool is this idea to add crystal or agate to your drawers? You can be consistent with one stone or eclectic and mix it up. I want to use agate pulls on a bedside chest someday soon, so elegant!
Last week I ordered a vanity from Home Depot for the downstairs bathroom remodel in the Nevada house but plan to upgrade it with some pretty knobs I found on Etsy from Knucklehead Knobs, here are a few others carried in the shop:
The shop sells DIY knobs so you can created something like this with any stone, shell, or bauble.
We adorn ourselves with jewelry, why not our cabinets too?!
Landi Designs sells some pretty agate pulls, knobs, and napkin rings.
Also visit The Hob Knobery for more gemstone selections:
