Some times I get struck with ideas and I have to make them happen ASAP. That’s exactly what happened while browsing the sale section of Anthropologie and chanced upon a bin of wayward knobs on sale for $2.99. All of a sudden I remembered I had never properly put the knobs on my chest of drawers and could create a fun custom piece with these little gems.

Naturally it wasn’t enough to stop at the knobs so I decided to paint the drawer fronts as well. After taking a trip to Strosnider’s, I decided on a navy paint for the drawers and picked up a sanding sponge to score the drawer fronts.

I started by removing the old knobs and using the sanding sponge to sand the drawer fronts. drawer2 drawer3 drawer4

After wiping the drawers clean, I applied 3 coats of the navy paint.drawer5 drawer6 drawer7I allowed the paint to dry and then applied the new knobs. drawer8After looking at the finished product, I decided that the navy paint wasn’t enough so I got my white and gold acrylic paints out that were left over from ym bangle project and decided to do a sponge effect.
