Phase one is complete. What was phase one? Well, it’s when I turned the little $7 Goodwill sidetable into a cute bed side table with a little paint.
Yeah…this is like one of those Topanga moments…do you remember that show Boy Meets World? In one of the earlier episodes, the girl Topanga comes out with different hair one time and all of a sudden, the boy Corey is like screaming, “I’m totally in love with you because of your straight locks!”
This is that moment.
Are you screaming at your computer screen “I’m in love with you because of your white coat of paint!”
It’s okay. I did it several times already.
But as much as I love it…there was something that struck me ‘sterile’ about the knobs. The stainless steel pulls didn’t really go with the rest of the room which was full of warm hues…
See what I mean? The freebie knobs just weren’t pullin’ my taffy, if you know what I mean.
Enter Hobby Lobby. I have been scouting out their new hardware since day one waiting for the 50% off sign to go up. Then a couple weeks ago, it finally happened. I may or may not have yelled “I’m in love with you because you have hot knobs!” as I entered the store. A store clerk may or may not have thought I was talking to them.
Armed with my iPhone and attempting to keep Will’s pacifier from the floor, I snapped some of my favorites.
Isn’t that airplane just darling? Makes me wanna redo the Tinkler’s room nautical-style.
And do you know that little store called Anthropologie? Yeah…they carry similar melon shaped glass knobs for twice the price!
They even carry handles that are chock-full of personality.
They carry big knobs (perfect for dressers) and small ones (hello mini drawer) and even ones that can personalize a space.
The great part is that Hobby Lobby has more creative styles than most local home improvement styles…and if you can’t wait around for the 50% sale, then you could always print out multiples of their online coupons (I think it’s 40% off!) and just make separate transactions for your project hardware.
psst – isn’t that last inky knob amazing!?!
So you wanna see what I finally chose to warm up the basement bedroom nightstand?
It was this wooden-inspired knob. I love how it looks carved and pieced together at the same time…and the finish is rich with all it’s different colors of warm browns.
And at only four dollars for both new knobs, I’d say this makeover is finally complete. Phase two – a success.
Let’s all pull our computer screens a little closer….and yell together…
“I’M IN LOVE WITH YOU BECAUSE OF YOUR WOODY KNOBS!”
