Create this look…
I have been to Hobby Lobby countless times to pick up their knobs for all my various pieces, I tend to get there the week they are not on 50% off sale… lol, but they are reasonably priced and have a great selection. Last week I was at Hobby Lobby, and of course it was the week the knobs were not on sale, so I navigated towards the art aisle and happened upon those fancy natural looking beads that is all the trend now in home decor and thought, “I love those big beads, wonder what I could do with them”. I had a thought to make some dangly knobs for a fun and funky BoHo look with them so I picked up a couple of the bags of the natural Big and Medium beads and some wired twine from the floral department.
“This is what I used”.
I then used my Dixie Belle Voo Doo Gel stain in Tobacco Road, Up In Smoke and Temptress, and did some staining on the beads. If you didn’t already know Voo Doo Gel Stain is a water based stain so its easy to work with and easy to clean up afterwards.
“Voo Doo Gel Stain”
This is the dresser I picked up at a local thrift store, I am painting it for my Mom’s Birthday and her favorite color is Yellow… I used a base of Rebel Yellow and shades with some Hurricane Gray and added a little Lemonade. I used some Voo Doo Gel stain in Tobacco Road on the legs to give them a fresh look.
I liked the idea of the wired twine to be able to twist it and attach the beads to the back part of the drawers. It worked like a charm. I played around with a few designs until I came with the dangly style. I really think they turned out adorable and costs approximately $14.00 in total for 8 knob, and then some….
