New knobs

Do you have a tired piece of furniture that you are umming and arring over giving it away to a better home? Stop! All it may need is a coat of paint and some new knobs to jazz it up! Below are some inspirational knob ideas too get your creative juices flowing!

Here is the stone/raw crystal/gem category. Super cute with any solid colour really! They would also look good if you have a blonde timber piece from Ikea to up cycle (don’t we all?)…And please style with metallics!

To me, there is nothing sexier than a metallic knob especially in gold or copper. Gush. I would gravitate towards painting your furniture item a solid colour like a pastel or my favourite, white. Gold + white = heaven…

LONG GOLD HANDLES

METAL KNOBS

Another option is timber knobs. You can leave them raw, like the blonde timber ones below or you can paint them up with geometric pastel patterns. And they come in cool shapes, from stream line, to round, to faceted… oh the possibilities!

Concrete knobs. Need I say more? And because I’m a closet Star Wars fan I had to include this stormtrooper knob!

How cute are these leather handles? I’m in love! Again, I think they would look best on a white piece of furniture. And to keep the look current, I’d choose light tan leather over darker shades unless you are going for the old world look.

Now to finish off my knob inspiration how cute is this dinosaur knob idea? Simply spray paint the dinosaurs in whatever colour you want and voila, cute as knobs! And no, this isn’t one just for the kids… spray paint your favourite animal in a sophisticated gold like the pic below.
