Decoupage Plain Wooden Knobs

I have never seen wooden knobs this large, and they are flat! 
Perfect for decoupage and creating a unique look!

I started with a blank canvas, after painting this blue dresser, off-white.

I found an image I liked, pulled it into photoshop and created circles 
a touch smaller than the knobs so I would still be able to distress the edges.

I printed them out, cut them, and time to decoupage!

Here it is, applied. Now for distressing!

There it is! I hop you found this inspiring!

Roadside Find to My Kitchen!

I saw this piece for free on the side of the road and thought.... 
I could definitely do something with that! So, in my Jeep it went! 
I have a galley kitchen, so I have a bureau in my kitchen for extra storage and this fit perfectly on top! I was so excited, now the bureau looks like a hutch! 
I am re-doing my kitchen cabinets in white, stainless steel appliances 
and greige walls, which is still in process.

Here are some before pics...

It's solid pine and just needed a few coats of fresh white paint.

This was just what my kitchen needed!

 My milk glass collection went on top...

...along with my black and white scale, keeping with the color scheme.

I pulled my canisters out of the cabinet, 
I found these at a flea market years ago for $6!

Putting the toaster oven here, freed up some counter space.

My spices fit underneath, along with a bowl for fruit.

My cook books fit on the shelves inside and my mail gets hidden in there too!

This bureau I picked up at my favorite junk shop a few years back for $25

I love the way my kitchen is starting to come together!

Architectural Salvage Coat Hook

This is the stuff I love!
Taking found objects and re-purposing them into something practical and unique.

I picked up these architectural salvage pieces at a yard sale, along with a box of door knobs.

I distressed the wood a little more, using an orbital sander.
You can see a little yellow popping through around the edges.

I drilled a hole and added a screw in order to attach the knob with epoxy.

Not sure what these things are, but I picked them up at
my favorite junk shop, they work perfect for around the knob.

They have little teeth, so I just hammered it
into the wood around where the knob will go.

I picked up this epoxy at Walmart for around $3.

Filled the inside of the knob with epoxy and placed it over the screw.

Perfect fit!

I added a picture hanger with teeth on the back for hanging.

This didn't last long in the shop, it sold with in a few days!
