I am slightly obsessed with drawer knobs, pulls and hardware. Whenever I go to Anthropologie I normally walk directly to the bin of hardware. Hardware can change the look of a piece. A mainstream chest can go from something that you see everywhere to looking like a vintage collected piece. I looked around my house and noticed a trend, almost every piece I own has new hardware added to it. See what I mean…
I found that little white cabinet in the bathroom storage section at Home Goods, I think it was maybe $70. I took off the white knob that matched the white wood and replaced it with a new gold drawer pull. I also took out the basket that came with it on the bottom and replace it with an antique picnic basket.
We have a tiny kitchen and I needed more storage. This piece works great for that. (You can read about my kitchen HERE).
This dresser I added to our entry for again, more storage. I found it for sale on an online used furniture site. I recently just replaced the knobs on this piece.
I mixed them up for an eclectic feel. It feels more eclectic rather than too farmhouse country.
Our piano has had a couple of different knobs on it. When I painted it (you can read about that HERE) I replaced them with a knob that matches our living room rug, a little pop of pink.
We recently made over my sons nursery (you can read about that HERE) and I found that dresser on Wayfair for a really good price. With a few little changes it became a changing table and looks a little more unique and more expensive than it did originally.
Unique hardware can be expensive to replace every knob on a piece of furniture. On my son’s changing table I switched out just the top two knobs and left what came with it on the rest of the piece. Great way to save money.
