Knob Know How
Don't think of knobs and drawer pulls as simply functional, think of them as jewelry for your furniture. They can transform the look of a piece in a few minutes, and it's a relatively inexpensive update.
1. There are a huge array of replacement knobs and pulls on the market and you can find them everywhere from home improvement centers to superstores to antique stores so look around.
2. To give a piece an eclectic look, use a different color or style knob for each spot. Glass knobs can give a newer piece an antique look for a fraction of the cost of the antiques.
3. You don't have to limit your self to what you can find in the store either, try picking up knobs at your local craft store and painting them yourself for a one of a kind look.
4. For a kid's room try some wooden blocks or small toys for drawer pulls.
