Laundry Room GIVEAWAY!
No, I’m not giving away my laundry room, but I do have a wonderful treat for you that I used in my laundry room!
But first I’d like to say thank you to all you wonderful people for your sweet comments on my Laundry room makeover…what a great group of gals you are! Your comments were overwhelmingly sweet!
I can’t wait to show you some more of the details of the laundry room in later posts, but this little detail has to be first! See this….
I bought these from a very sweet lady on Ebay named Lisa and she has agreed to give some to YOU! (U.S. residents only please)You might think, eh I don’t really need any knobs (or maybe you do, cause they’re gorgeous!), but I didn’t use these as knobs, so keep reading! I initially purchased them for my cabinets, but when they arrived at my house, I knew they needed to become more than just a cabinet knob, these things are beautiful! Lisa hand makes these knobs with her own digitally printed papers and they are gorgeous! (and she’s talented!) Here’s what I did with them!
I turned them into knobs/hooks for my laundry room wall! They are 2” across, so plenty big enough to use as hooks!
This is how they come when they arrive at your house. They have a screw with them if you want to use them as knobs, but I did a little altering to turn them into hooks!
I bought a package of Dowel screws….. (you get three in a pack for a $1.18 at Lowes)
Here’s what dowel screws looks like ..…as you can see, it has screws on both ends.
I just screwed one side into the knob like this………
Then used pliers to make it screw all the way in on the one side. (notice I’m using pliers in the middle so as not to mess up the threads on the piece)
Those little screws can turn any wood knob into a hook in an instant..see presto chango!…..
Next I just pre-drilled a whole in the board and batten….
and just screwed in my knob/hook!
and there ya have it….beautiful knobs that can be used for drawers, or as hooks on your wall!
Lisa has generously offered to give one of my readers three of these damask knobs! (that’s the number I used in my laundry room below…can’t see the last one for the washer.)
