Fancy Door/ Cabinet Knobs are gorgeous yet can be quite expensive accessories to add to a cabinet or home project, especially when you are working within a specific budget. It is a shame because these added details, albeit small, can complete a look quite fabulously! Don't you think?? With this challenge in mind, I thought I would do a quick, DIY- Hand printed, knob decoration tutorial that can be done on any wooden knob for a door or cabinet.
Wooden Door Knob
Dry sponge roller
|My $3 wooden cabinet knob|
Sponge/ spray paint over knob in chosen colour. Set aside to dry!
|Stanley knife around your chosen image|
This is actually my favorite part! Using a Stanley knife cut carefully around you're design. Practice really makes perfect and a seamless design is what your aiming for.
|Use a Dry Sponge Roller|
Use a dry sponge roller and a thick acrylic/ house paint. I do say thick because your chosen paint should have no added thinners or water. The thicker your paint is the better your hand printed design will be; you will be able to achieve quite a sharp image! Aim for the following;
When dry, paint a clear lacquer/ gloss over your door knob and hooray your project is now complete.
Offcourse, I do have plans for some decorated door knobs for all of the bedroom doors coming off our hallway, I just need to decide on a suitable design! Yes, I will reveal one day soon! Rach x
