Decorating with Decorative Knobs


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.shelves on Entertainment center decorated at One More Time Events.com
 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.

Supplies Needed:
Basket
Metallic Glaze (I used Martha Stewart Metallic Glaze)
Decorative knob (found at Hobby Lobby)
Sponge brush

Directions:
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.

I just love the look of these knobs… I also used them on another project I did recently as bottle stoppers on bottles.   I also used Martha Stewarts metallic glazes on them.

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!

Hi, 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!!

The hands behind the voice and ideas,

Judy

  4. I love the baskets. I have several around the house that don't quite match each other that would look cute with matching knobs. I love it that your Mom is such a wonderful part of your blog and life. Great to know that family spirit is alive and well.

  7. Such a great idea to add the knobs. I always want to buy all the pretty ones I see at Hobby Lobby. Had to smile and laugh at your Mom's post script! Usually it works the other way for me ~ I pass things I'm getting rid of to my daughter. : )
