Have you ever been in a thrift store or vintage shop and found yourself sifting through a bucket of old door knobs? Us too. The problem is, though, half the time you find a few you love but don’t exactly know what to do with them.
You can always go the easy route and just replace your home’s door knobs, but, that’s typically a pricey venture if you try and do them all. Instead, there are a bunch of do-it-yourself projects you can tackle that only require a few of your favorite pretty knobs. These projects not only look great, they’re sure to impress with their creativity. Curious as to what crafts we’ve found? Check out the list below!
1. Dresser handles
Replace those boring wooden knobs or ugly brass handles with something vintage or shiny. We love these glass handles against this distressed, gray dresser.
2. Create a gallery wall
It seems like everybody has a gallery wall these days! Add a bit of whimsy and an element of surprise to yours by using beautiful vintage door knobs. You can use them to hang picture frames or little pieces of art.
3. Curtain tie back
Instead of using a regular old hook to pull back your gorgeous curtains, fix some old vintage door knobs to your wall. They’ll stay hidden away except for when you pull your curtain back around them to gleam in the sunlight.
4. Door knob flower holder
Is this gorgeous, or what? We love how they’ve nailed these old knobs to a piece of wood because you can pick it up and move it around — like in the living room or on the back deck when you have a party. But, you can also attach them to the wall, too!
5. Towel holder
Hang your bathroom towels on something pretty, like vintage knobs! Fasten them right to the wall, or onto a piece of wood with extra hooks like they did here.
6. Curtain rod ends
