Every time I go to Anthropologie or World Market, I always have to check out their dresser knobs. They have some of the coolest hardware.
Since this dresser in my kids’ room is a cheap, older one that I’ve had forever, I wasn’t afraid to play around with it. I wanted to see if I could give it a little face lift without spending $100 on knobs.
Here is the dresser before.
For this project, you’ll only need Mod Podge, glitter, and a paintbrush.
I started out using my homemade version of Mod Podge but forgot that this version leaves a matte finish. For this project I wanted a gloss finish so I used store bought Gloss Mod Podge instead.
To begin, remove your knobs with a screwdriver.
Then paint a layer of Mod Podge on the knob and immediately dip it in a pile of sparkles dabbing it all around until the knob is completely covered.
Let dry. Then paint another layer of Mod Podge on top of the glitter. It will look white but don’t worry, it dries clear and glossy.
After that dries, you can do one more layer of Mod Podge just to make sure it’s all sealed down. Since it’s a frequently touched item, you don’t want glitter coming off on your hands.
Your knob will look shiny and glittery but the glitter will be completely sealed down.
Now you are ready to put your knobs back on your dresser. At first, I thought it would be fun to have each drawer have its own color. Here’s how that turned out.
I changed my mind and wanted to see how it would look with all one color so I just glittered over the finished ones with the glitter I wanted.
These pictures don’t show off the knobs very well, but here is the final dresser with all the knobs in the same glitter.
This is a fun, cheap way to add a little color and sparkle to any piece of furniture.
