DIY Knobs That Are Full Of Style

A great way to update tired cabinets or an old dresser is to replace the existing knobs. There is no better way to add a ton of unique style than to replace the knobs with your very own creative version. You can make DIY knobs yourself out of just about anything to create a fun look that no one else will have. Or, you can knock off your favorite expensive style and re-create it with your own unique twist.

A while back, I wrote a post on a rustic dresser makeover. As part of that makeover, I also made over the old wooden knobs. I simply added a flat glass marble over the top of each wooden knob with a circle of decorative paper in between.

Easy Ideas For DIY Knobs

I recently made over a knob that I plan on using in an upcoming project.

Vintage Button Knobs

For this one, I simply glued a vintage button to the top of a white wooden knob for a more shabby chic look. A knob like this can be customized in so many ways depending on the buttons used. With all the styles and colors, you are able to make just the look that you want.
