Having done a lot of Craig's List furniture refinishing lately, I've been inspired to do a little face-lift on furniture we've already got. I decided to start with the furniture in our baby girl's nursery. We purchased it new before her arrival, and it's beautiful, but I wanted to add a little something to it so it looked a little more sophisticated as she gets older and transitions out of "babyhood" (kinda sad). I decided to look around for some new hardware - a quick and easy fix that can really transform furniture pieces. I found a great website called MyKnobs.com that sells discounted decorative hardware - they have the best prices on hardware that I've seen anywhere. I found these knobs on their site and ordered them - they were $2.47 per knob.
About a week and a half later, they arrived on our doorstep. After working with the company, I'd highly recommend them. I called them to check on the status of my order a couple days after I ordered the knobs and customer service was very helpful.
Here is a picture of the dresser before:
It's cute furniture with the bun feet and dental molding along the top...but it looks a little like big-box furniture store wares (because it is!). I wanted to add a little contrast to the all-white going on.
Here is a picture after the knobs were (very easily) installed with nothing but a phillips head screw-driver:
Ok, we'll get a little closer (you can click on the pictures to enlarge them as well):
I think they make the furniture look like it has a little more history - a little flash of vintage goes a long ways when applied to brand new furniture.
Here are the knobs on the chest of drawers:
And, a close-up:
Love 'em! I spent a total of $47 for 17 knobs and shipping/handling. It was a bit of a splurge but it gave the furniture just the face-lift it needed. I was able to set aside the previous knobs for a future project, so nothing was wasted. Our master bedroom furniture is next for knobin'...so we'll have to see what I come up with for that.
