A while back, I mentioned on Instagram that I was in the process of making over a dresser. I wanted to share a sneak peek with you today of one of my favorite details– the knobs! And yup, if you didn’t catch it by now, they totally match my blog’s background pattern.

The chances that you actually need a full tutorial are slim, but here it goes!

Paint knobs with your design, let dry, then attach to dresser. I found, with a bit of testing, that a bamboo skewer gave me more control than a paint brush (it almost feels like a pencil). Just be sure to wipe the end after each use so that paint doesn’t clump on the end.

Costing less than $10, it’s such an affordable and fun way to add your personal flair to a piece of furniture, don’t you think? The possibilities of what you could do are endless really. Stay tuned– the big dresser reveal will be here by the end of the month as part of my garage to studio space makeover project!
