YOU'RE PULLING MY.........DRAWER

 
 
 

DRAWER KNOBS AND PULLS
I found these simple knobs at Home Depot for very little money and thought they would be terrific for a project.  Here are some ideas that might inspire you to change out your drawer knobs and spice up your furniture. By the way, if you ever see an old dresser on the street, grab a screwdriver and take off the  handles for a future project.  You never know!

YOU’LL NEED:
Basic flat drawer knobs from a major hardware chain
Large fabric flowers
Glass chips
Images the size of the glass chips
Elmer’s white glue
1” wide paintbrush
Large gems (a bit smaller than the size of the knob)
Household Goop Glue

HERE’S HOW
FOR THE GLASS CHIP WITH IMAGES
1.      Place your glass chip on top of your image and trace around the chip.
2.      Cut out the image just a bit smaller than the shape you’ve drawn.
3.      Paint a thin layer of Elmer’s on the image and adhere it to the back of the glass chip so that you can see it from the front of the chip.
4.      When it’s dry, use a generous amount of Household Goop Glue or E-6000 and attach the chip on the knob.  You’re done!

FOR THE FLOWERS AND GEM KNOBS
1. Glue the flowers or gems in the center of each knob with E-6000.  Done!

DECORATIVE  ROPE DRAWER PULL
YOU’LL NEED PER KNOB
10” of decorative rope per knob
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
E-6000
Transparent tape

HERE’S HOW
1.      Start at the center of the knob and hot glue the very edge of the rope right in the middle.
2.      Spiral around and around using the E-6000 until you come to the very edge of the knob.
3.      Tuck the end of the rope under the knob where you can’t see it and use hot glue to keep it in place.
4.      Dab a bit the Household Goop Glue on it as well so it really stays in place.
5.      Put some transparent tape over the whole thing to keep the rope in place until it dries.
