We accidentally on purpose ordered one too many cabinet doors on our recent home construction project. This long skinny one was put on the short list and got booted to the garage pretty quick. Every time I saw it, I kept thinking there had to be something good I could do with it. So, I turned it from a cabinet door into a functional and beautiful hanger display.
Inspiration struck when I started playing around with stencils painting my front door here with flat and gloss combinations. I knew I would use a smaller design stencil to coordinate well with the small open face frame of the cabinet door. Wasn't sure about the best color combination until I came across these beautiful knobs at Hobby Lobby (half price sale of course!) So, black & white it would be.
The only problem with these HL knobs is that they usually are designed to screw into a nut rather than screwing into the knob itself. When you use a counter sink drill bit, the screw & nut both lay inside the recessed area and lay flush to the back side like this:
If you don't have access to equipment to recess a screw hole in back of your board, just select your knobs carefully so your board will lay flat against the wall.
I went shopping with those helpful people at Lowe's to find a little metal tube to set the knob into so it would project out from the surface a bit. I have no idea what this little thing is called but I know it works. It had a bright metal finish and I just spray painted it black. It now has enough depth to hold a robe or a towel easily. The total investment was less than $20 and I love the transformation!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I will be sharing at the following linky parties this week.
