One thing I’ve wanted to incorporate within O’Boy! Organic was more DIY. In my personal life I am a huge fan of upcycling and DIY projects. If you take a look at my home you will see a lot of consignment shop finds mixed in with the new. One way I like to make a piece of old furniture look new again or a new piece look unique is by changing the hardware. I’ve either painted or totally replaced the hardware on almost all of my dressers and cabinets in my house. You can easily transform a piece for a fraction of the price of buying new.
This summer while on vacation, I found these knobs for my boys red dresser. I purchased the dresser at Ikea and the knobs were just plain Jane. When I saw these vintage water spigot knobs I knew I had to have them, they were perfect for the room, along with a new rug I found at a yard sale.
Besides shopping at consignment and vintage shops I love me some online shopping. Here are some of my favorite places online when looking for vintage knobs and hardware.
ETSY – These would be great for a accent cabinet in the kitchen or to use as hooks for a peg board
AMAZON – I love these knobs that I found through the Charleston Knob Company. There are so many to choose from and this one is similar to the ones I bought for my kids dresser.
ANTHROPOLOGIE – I am not sure if I love Anthropologie’s clothes or home decor more, both are amazing. How fun is this pull knob which would be great for a white or even black dresser or cabinet.
