Decorating with Decorative Knobs
A couple of weeks ago, we had new carpet put in, and the living and dining room painted. It is taking me forever (can't do things like I use to… ) to get things back together. I am making some changes and down sizing on furniture and all the DIY projects that have accumulated over the years that has turned into clutter…Time to de-clutter and do a little Spring cleaning!
This is a small project of how I am de-cluttering and getting organized.
I have had these baskets and all they did was sit empty, so to utilize them on the shelves and turn them into decorative pieces, I gave them a bit of a makeover.To lighten the baskets up they were painted with Martha Stewart metallic glaze, the same glazes I used in some of my projects in my master bedroom makeover . I used a sponge brush to get into the grooves of the basket.

Decorative knob (found at Hobby Lobby)
With a sponge brush paint your basket (glazes do take some time to dry)
When basket is completely dried
find center of your basket
poke knob through the basket and fasten it...making sure it is tight to the basket.
Like I said it is taking me forever to get things back in order, but here is what it looks like (for now) with the new baskets with knobs…the baskets now hold remotes, coasters and other small items, I don't want just laying around. A new look with a little oranazation…. aww... just what was needed! Do you find yourself as a DIY blogger…hoarding every little project that you do, like I do? I have now made a promise to myself…when I make a new project, one of the old projects has to go. Looks like my Mom's place is getting some new decorations!
Till Next Post…Xo TammyHi, you have heard about me a lot, I'm Judy, Tammy's Mother. I have been the one that does the typing for her blog. That is, with her telling me what to type. I enjoy helping her, when they get her hands 'fixed', I hope I can still help her, as I'm retired, and this gives me something to do.
Today as I was typing her 'words', I got so excited when she said I was going to be getting a lot of her 'old' projects!! It was hard to listen to her after that, because I was arranging her 'old' projects in my house!! LOL Her 'old' projects will be my most treasured and new decorations!!
