Sweet Pulls

Now that I'm doing lots of DIY projects, I find myself hunting for unique knobs and pulls.

I love the simple pewter ones you get at the hardware store.  But I need to think of them more as accessories, that punch of colour or eye-catching design that really makes the piece pop.  I was browsing the very cool options on Etsy and here are some of my faves.  These first ones are old outdoor water knobs, how cool would they look on a distressed dresser?

Which is your favourite?

Written with love,


  1. fun! I'm torn between the teal birds and the clock faces...they are both so cool but also different styles. Hmmm

  2. Top 2 buttons are my favourites. I think both would create a different look altogether - both equally as neat.

    I really like the girl with the swan but maybe only as 1 mis-matched button on a dresser - or if they had diff pics in the same style, that would be cool too.

    What if you found pulls that were all part of the same colour family and then mis-matched them on an old dresser? Hmmm you got me thinkin!

  3. oh, awesome! i adore the first ones. gorgeous :)

    hope you are having a lovely day!

  4. OOh the Alice one is def my fave. Anthropologie has amazing pulls, I have no use for them but want to buy them compulsively.

  5. Love the knobs in that first pic! Anthro has some really pretty ones too!

  6. I was at Anthropologie last weekend and had this urge to buy all new knobs even though I don't need them. They are that cute!
