Well, I thought I was going to have a cool DIY dipped-leg table project to show y'all today, but it turns out, the little guy is going to need a nice lacquering on top and I just didn't have time for all that before today. Next week, hopefully!
So onto my next future project...
I've been thinking about "hacking" this Tarva 3-drawer dresser from Ikea for either our entry or strange and awkward dining room turned toddler kitchen/play area. Our entry is not that wide, so it's 15" depth is perfect--just enough for a small lamp and bouquet of fresh flowers.
And what Ikea hack project is complete without custom knobs to really make it pop?
So I did a little searching to see what kind of cool knobs I could find out there, and here's what I came up with. These aren't your standard, run-of-the-mill chrome bars. I like to get a little funky with my hardware. After all, it's a great and inexpensive way to give your furniture some personality when needed. For an entry piece, that would be perfect. Check 'em out:
I'm really loving the green scallop. That would be so pretty on a charcoal painted dresser with gold feet (which I'd also like to replace...maybe put it on some small antique casters...). And the great thing about Hobby Lobby is they have their hardware on sale for 50% off pretty regularly. And if they are short on the number of knobs you need, they'll order the rest in for you at the same discounted price.
What's your go-to place for interesting hardware?
I'm always on the look-out for great sources. If there's one I've left out, drop us a line!
Until next time...
