Aside from painting walls and cabinets, the second-easiest way to update a kitchen on a budget is to upgrade dated cabinet hardware. Eco lifestyle expert Danny Seo shows us a brilliant idea for adding a bit of glam without breaking a sweat. The secret? Transforming a colorful collection of geodes, sea glass, or minerals into cool cabinet hardware! Check out the steps to pulling off this creative DIY in your kitchen.
What You'll Need:
- Old knobs or drawer pulls
- Mineral or rock slices or pieces
- E-6000 glue
- Low-adhesive painter's tape.
How to Make It
- Using E-6000 glue (available at Michaels craft stores), squeeze a generous amount onto the front of the knob, and attach a mineral or rock onto its front.
- Don't try to use a different brand of glue for this project, no matter how powerfully strong it may promise to be on the package. I've used them all, and E-6000 is the best of the best for this.
- Using low-adhesive painter's tape, secure the rock onto the knob, so it doesn't slide off as it dries.
- Allow it to dry for a full 24 hours, and remove the tape.
