Cabinet Knobs: Before and After

A few weeks back I gave our petite loo a petite makeover...

The makeover included the bathroom sink cabinet door knobs...Whew, that was a mouth full...Hee, hee, hee. Anyway, this it what they looked like before. (Above)

A coat of black spray paint and a then a coat of green paint, a bit of distressing and antiquing and here you have it. The round knob is the original one and I just added the back piece you see. Found the back pieces for 65 cents at the thrift store. They were originally a brass color.

Hmmmm, now I'm thinking the cabinet might be in need of a makeover too :-)

So what do you think of the new knobs?

**For all who read and commented on my last post...Thank you for stopping by and for your caring comments. Oh, and don't worry, I already had the pictures for this post so I didn't have to be on my feet :-)

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend.

Hugs and Kisses,

Very creative and certainly dressed up the cabinet. I'm in the process of redoing a bathroom vanity so I appreciate the inspiration!

Such a simple change but does make a big difference. Looks great! I just read your previous post. I sure hope that with rest, your swelling will go down and all will be well. It does seem that such things tend to last a bit longer than when we were younger. :/ I twisted my ankle while walking and it stayed swollen for quite some time. My husband had the same problem recently. Wishing you all the best. Tammy

Oh my dear Ana, I hope your leg is getting better, what a strange thing to happen to you. Bless your heart!
I love your little knob makeover in the loo. The new knobs are beautiful! Adding the new brass piece and painting them is brilliant!
You take good care, my dear friend,
Love and hugs, Cindy

They look lovely! I love the pop of green that they bring & the scrolly design is so pretty.

I was all set to yell at you for being up, with a screwdriver in hand, changing knobs when you're supposed to be relaxing. Glad you clarified that this was done beforehand so I don't have to yell at you.

Hope you're feeling better each day.

Victoria said...

Hi Ana,
I love how your knobs turned out and I love the white cabinet..White cabinets are my favorite. I just posted about new bathroom knobs too...Hehehe.
Oh no, I just read about your leg swelling I so wish I lived close, I would run over and help you or at least bring you over dinner. You just rest and keep off your feet and before you know it you will be back in your boots!.
Big Big hugs for you....
