The Land of Knobs

September 8, 2014

It's amazing how such a small thing can make such a big impact. In this case - knobs. Especially when you want to create an original look but are on a tight budget, changing the knobs or pulls on an inexpensive piece of furniture is just the thing you need. Another great thing about it is that you can have the same piece of furniture and change the whole look by simply switching the knobs. This goes for kitchen cabinets, console tables, dressers, door knobs, etc. I'll show you how this simple step can change the whole look...

This is the console my boyfriend and I bought for our small apartment entryway - well, it doesn't really have an entryway but that is the feel we are going for by putting a console against the wall close to when you walk in - we chose the off-white finish because we also have white lacquer chairs in our dining area paired with a walnut finished mid-century table (pics to come!).  We haven't changed the knobs but it will happen in the near future.

Right now this console is on sale for $112.49 at Target. We really liked the simple look of it - except when we got it we found out it's really only one drawer that opens and not two - oops, it still fits our apartment great and the price was on point so it's a win. Here are some knobs I found that could really work with our decor and style (maybe more my style..I'm the stylist, anyway, right?)...

1 / Agate Knob - Light Gray / $9.99 / West Elm

2 / Black & White Stripe Knob / $8 / Anthropologie

3 / Brown Carved Wood Vine Knobs - Set of 2 / $7.98 / World Market

4 / Antler Melody Knob - Tusk / $14 / Anthropologie

5 / Carved Turquoise Knob / $6 or 2 for $10 / Urban Outfitters

I'm really loving #3 because of the shape and dark features against the off-white console. Thoughts? I'd love to know :)
