DIY Drawer Knob Project

DIY Jewelry For Your Cabinets

Aside from painting walls and cabinets, the second-easiest way to update a kitchen on a budget is to upgrade dated cabinet hardware. Eco lifestyle expert Danny Seo shows us a brilliant idea for adding a bit of glam without breaking a sweat. The secret? Transforming a colorful collection of geodes, sea glass, or minerals into cool cabinet hardware! Check out the steps to pulling off this creative DIY in your kitchen.

What You'll Need:

  • Old knobs or drawer pulls
  • Mineral or rock slices or pieces
  • E-6000 glue
  • Low-adhesive painter's tape.

How to Make It

  • Using E-6000 glue (available at Michaels craft stores), squeeze a generous amount onto the front of the knob, and attach a mineral or rock onto its front.
  • Don't try to use a different brand of glue for this project, no matter how powerfully strong it may promise to be on the package. I've used them all, and E-6000 is the best of the best for this.
  • Using low-adhesive painter's tape, secure the rock onto the knob, so it doesn't slide off as it dries.
  • Allow it to dry for a full 24 hours, and remove the tape.

This is really adorable :) Also fun that you could change up the accessories (towels and such) in your kitchen from time to time to match a particular knob. Me likey!
