Great dresser knobs for decorative or hand painted furniture are a must. Really great knobs can make a good, pretty piece of furniture and make it the focal point in the room. They are like shiny jewelry that dresses up a little black dress. Great knobs are like icing on the cake!
Miss K had gone from a sweet little girls room to a teen room and wanted her bedroom furniture to reflect that. So we decided that painted bedroom furniture was the best way to go. Before I share the finished painted bedroom furniture pieces with you, I want to show you a little detail that can take painted furniture from just being good – to being great!
Here is what we started with – a pine dresser, hand painted with a white wash. Really sweet! However, not what your teen dreams of in the way of furniture. And the drawer pulls? Not so much. Really plain and a little boring. So here is how to make those pulls into something awesome.
We took a rubber stamp, a permanent pigment ink stamp pad and the painted dresser knobs.
Stamping the dresser knob was a little tricky since the stamp was flat and the dresser knob was not! However, with a little patience and using a rolling – rocking motion we got the knobs stamped pretty well. I wasn’t so concerned with it being perfect as the dresser was slightly distressed and made to look a little old. So if the stamping of the knobs wasn’t perfect, then that was OK – it matched the rest of the furniture!
Here is what we ended up with. Not too bad! However, the dresser pulls needed a little bling.
I found these at my local Michael’s and thought they would be perfect for our dresser knobs.
Here is our finished dresser knob. A little old and a little bling. Perfect for this teens room and so easy to do. These little details can make your painted furniture piece beautiful!
Later this week I will be sharing with you the finished bedroom set – featuring the awesome, rock star dresser knobs featured today. I can’t wait!
Until next time….
