Home Décor Inspiration: Decorative Knobs

Last weekend I went out and got beautiful, decorative knobs to replace every single knob in my kitchen. That’s right, all 8 of ‘em. I mean, my kitchen cabinets were fine before… plain white with simple silver knobs. They were cute. But now, they’re gorgeous – the knobs make such a statement! You can’t go into my kitchen without your eyes being drawn to the cracked white stone knobs on my cabinets or the little yellow rose pulls on my drawers. Eight little knobs transformed my kitchen, and I’m not stopping there.

You can use pretty knobs to update almost every piece of furniture in your home – all your dressers, your cabinets, your doorknobs — and it doesn’t have to end with just furniture. There are tons of DIY projects you can do with decorative knobs, like making jewelry holders and wall hooks. They’re also fun to use on their own! I have some gorgeous vintage-looking doorknobs that look amazing simply placed on top of my dressers and windowsills amidst all my other little treasures. Here’s one that’s sitting right on top of my work desk as I type this! Well, it’s half of one:

The rose doorknob is beautiful.
I thought about getting decorative knobs for my cupboards for quite some time but haven’t gotten up to go look!

Thank you, I have recently been searching for info
approximately this subject for a while and yours is the best I’ve discovered
so far. But, what about the conclusion? Are you sure
about the supply?
