I found this great Gentleman's chest of drawers at my local Flea Market and thought it was so interesting and had a lot of potential. I love how the top opens up as a compartment for hats and then there are 3 smaller drawers on the side. The bottom 3 drawers are large and can hold lots of things. I snatched this piece up fast after a bit of haggling!
The dresser had 10 knobs and one was broken and I did not like the knobs in the first place, so I needed to come up with a low cost solution. I have a stash of extra knobs, but I did not have 10 that matched or that I thought looked good so.........
I went to the Hardware store and found some knobs for $1.28. They were not a good color but they had good details, were cheap and metal so I bought 10 and headed home. My idea was to paint them-- so I got out my white homemade chalk paint and gave the knobs a quick coat of paint. I quickly rubbed off the paint with a cloth and the white paint was left in the ridges. I love the knobs now!
