I'm working on transforming a dresser right now - but didn't want to spend a fortune on knobs ( as in glass knobs which can easily add up to over a hundred dollars if there's a lot of them like on this one - 12 of them !!! ) so thought I'd show ( again - because I know I blogged about these a long time ago ) a frugal alternative.
These back plates are only a 1.29 from Home Depot
I LOVE them because they can easily be spray painted any color and can add such fun detail to any piece !
I spray painted them silver - and then dry brushed a little white on them and then sprayed the black handles as well -
and for 1.29 each I have these
I've painted them pink in the past for a little girls dresser - gold a few times - and once in a coral color - it's a great way to add a little something - something to a dresser ( in a cost effective way )
For this dresser silver really seemed to be the way to go
Guess you know what I'll be working on today !
Have a great one everybody !
