MAKE IT / 19

the closets in my new room are white and simple (see here)…but that doesn’t mean the door handles have to be. we replaced my shiny silver round handles with these colorful painted ones and it made a huge difference! these would fancy up a dresser as well…now let’s make them.

what you’ll need:

• unfinished wooden drawer pull (available at most hardware stores)
• ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape
• gold spray paint
• multi surface craft paint in desired color palette
• paintbrush
• spray clear coat (optional)

how to make it (follow along with animated photo below!)

• tape exterior edge of drawer pull taking care to smooth the tape as you go along
• run a piece of tape across the top of the pull at an angle
• spray 2 coats gold spray paint on exposed area, let dry
• remove tape and either : A. run tape across the top at a different angle or B. cover the gold area and then run tape across the top
• brush several coats of colored paint over the exposed area. depending on what you have taped off the colored and gold sections will overlap in different ways.
• remove all tape after paint has completely dried
• spray with clear coat if desired. we love the contrast of the bare wood and painted surfaces so we did not coat ours, but if you’re concerned with wear and tear then you might consider a coat or two.

i like to display my bright necklaces on them…

it’s time to fancy up those drawer pulls and closet doors, people. do you have fun ideas for door knobs?

    sue says:

    completely love this idea… we’ve recently moved & have inherited silver shiny door knobs too… i’ve been searching for neon pink or faceted gold replacements, but having seen this i’m thinking why settle for either when i could have both! love it! may have to steal it! 😉

    Carla says:

    Love that idea! It looks modern and fun. I’m moving to a new apartment in a couple of weeks so I might consider this. Thanks! – Carla

    Love this idea! Great tutorial. This will be great to replace a knob on a drawer that fell off- I just don’t use it now which is silly!

    My favorite DIY I’ve seen in a long while! This is so, so fun! My little brain runneth over with ways to put these into action.

    Tan says:

    I’ve been wanting to jazz up the dresser my dad made me years ago without drastically altering his hard work. This is perfect!

    Sarah says:

    perfect. What a great way to add color when you’re renting, too! You can always put on new knobs and not get hit with fees!

    So simple… I’m using this idea, ASAP.

    Lisa says:

    Hey Bri, now that I had another look at your white closets’ doors, you can go even more edgy by painting in patterns (not everything at once of course, but small touches) with the method you used with the shelves (tape + paint + spray).
    Or some simple thin gold lines in different angles could make the difference too.
    Oh my, I’m looking at my closet now like it’s a huge blank canvas 🙂

    fred says:

    these are brilliant! thank you! will save them for when our spare room turns into a nursery 😉 Have a dresser which i want to change up a bit!

    This is the cutest idea. When I saw it on pinterest I assumed it would be hard to make, but reading your step-by-step instructions makes it seem super easy.

    I’ve found super cheap wooden knobs on eBay (http://stores.ebay.com/Flatlanders-Fine-Cabinet-Hardware?_rdc=1) so now all I have to do is go find me some metalic paint and I’ll be on my way!

    Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂

    One of the most popular stone types used in both commercial and residential architecture is granite. Thanks to its amazing durability and extensive selection of colours, patterns, and finishes, it can make any space beautiful. Granite is a versatile material. Numerous goods, including pavers and worktops, can be made from granite. Here are some examples of how our Connecticut company’s granite stone is used in interior and exterior designs, as well as some other rare applications that can give your project the perfect finishing touch. Whatever use you come up with, you can be sure that the granite stone’s beauty and hardness will shine through.

    what an awesome diy!! love how the gold really complements those colors and the wood. this is definitely going on my to-do list this weekend… thank you for sharing!!
