Make your own knobs for your furniture.

As you might know I had some fun earlier this week with clay,
I am excited to show you another little project that I made that day.

I may have mislead you with the title of this post, because really what I did was up-cycled some old knobs with clay.


Remember this photo from the last post??!!  :o) Yep that is my knob already to the painted point of making it.


This is the final product.
A fun up-cycled knob.
Much better looking than the original gold-ish colored knob it started out as! 
I should explain that I came across a bag-o-knobs at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago and have been wanting to do some fun project with them....starting with clay! 



I started with the old knob and just formed the clay around it.  I tried to work the clay to the edges of where the knob so that it could all be painted and look the same.
I just kept working and smoothing and sometimes adding a few drops of water to smooth further.


Then I added a glossy top coat.  
No literally a top coat!
I used some top coat nail polish I had around my house to give the knob a nice shiny finish.

What do you think?  Kind of a fun way to up-cycle an old looking knob right??

Please please please go and check out my giveaway---it ends on Thursday!

Anddddddd get ready to PARTY!  Because my crafty party will begin this evening---be sure to come back and check out my last clay project at that time too!!!
