If you’ve never switched out the hardware on your drawers, you’re missing out. There are tons of glam options, of course- you’ve probably seen several ideas at Anthropologie! Luckily, drawer pulls are super simple to pick up at any hardware store and even easier to customize!
My bathroom is the epitome of a “rental”: a couple dings in the enamel sink, a vanity that doesn’t match the mirrored medicine cabinet, a curtain rod that was installed backward so that the shower curtain rings catch when you try to close them. On the plus side, the room gets tons of light and is in great shape and mostly white. Since I tend to buy blue bath towels (and striped ones, obviously) I decided I needed to make some inexpensive new drawer pulls to pull the space together. I came up with these adorable nautical drawer pulls, featuring a freehand anchor in navy and white!
To get started, assemble your supplies:
– Sharpie Paint Pen (in White)
– acrylic paint (in Navy)
– Mod Podge
– assorted brushes (at least one with a fine tip and one foam brush)
Now, get started by using the white paint pen to draw on the anchor shape.
Wait for the paint to dry, then use your thin brush to carefully outline the anchor with the navy paint.
Continue layering on the navy outline until you’ve reached your desired look. If the white section is not as opaque as you’d like, wait until the navy is completely dry and redraw using the paint pen.
Complete the knobs with a layer or two of Mod Podge (applied using the foam brush)!
I’m replacing all my drawer knobs with the anchor version, but it’d be great to mix and match too!
