When Shane and I were first married we got an old hand-me-down couch from my aunt and uncle, we bought a very cheap table from K-mart, and I bought some wood crates from the craft store and turned them into an entertainment center. That, and the beag bag I had in high school, were all we had when it came to furniture. We stacked our clothes up in piles in the corner of our studio apartment. Our first Christmas my grandma gave us some money and we bought an unfinished wood armoire. It stayed unfinished for awhile and then I added polyurethane for a natural wood look. Years later I decided that dark walnut was all the rage so I sanded it down and stained it. After 17 years, it is starting to show its age and I knew it was time for another makeover. It was the perfect candidate for my HomeRight post this month!
Right now it is in the boys’ room and is functioning as my youngest’s dresser. I haven’t nailed down the look of their new room (I keep changing my mind!) but I do know that grey will be one of the colors so I thought a soft grey would be perfect.
I painted it using HomeRight’s new sprayer, the Finish Max Super. After you guys give me some help picking the hardware, I have a GIVEAWAY!
After it was all painted, I pulled out my hardware bin with all my knobs and handles and I found that I had too many good options and I couldn’t decide. You guys were so helpful with my flooring options, that I thought you could pitch in again with this project. I’ll share the 6 ideas, and you tell me your favorite!
My boys are all into the great outdoors and I want their room to reflect that so I thought these wood slice knobs were a fun nod to nature.
All of my boys collect rocks and one year I ordered some of those “break your own” geodes. They loved using the hammer to gently break them open and find the crysals inside! I saved some and turned them into knobs. I painted the orangey-tan part a nice silver.
I had some traditional metal knobs that were from when updated our old bathroom vanity. Since I tore out the old vanity to build a new one, I had these laying around.
I have used rocks as coat hooks in the office so why not as cabinet knobs?
I had some leftover hardware from our kitchen. I love the vintage-y feel of the pulls!
For some reason I had a ton of those unfinished wood knobs in my bin. I painted some to match the dresser!
Here are some close up shots to help you decide :)
