Bedeck Your Furniture With New Knobs and Pulls
We’ll admit it: We’re not DIYers. For some reason we can imagine turning a falling-down shack into a showplace, but can’t really visualize a paring end table using a brand new lease on life. It’s time to change all that!
We can always get excited about accessories, and gorgeous knobs are the accessories of any piece of furniture or cabinetry. From soft and subtle to show stealing, a perfect knob for every bit is in reach. These choices are enough to make us want to grab a while and run (not walk) to our local flea market — or at least carry an electric screwdriver to some of our current pulls. Here’s how to put a twist.
