I bought this vintage bar off Craigslist right when we moved into our house. It was one of the first projects I did on the blog. I painted it, and it has been a good little cabinet to use in our dining room.
This bar/cabinet sits in the corner of our dining room and holds our alcohol and drinking glasses for different drinks. Since I painted it, it has just sat in the corner. However, I realized after I put up the gold striped curtains last week that the bar was just lost in the room. I decided to dress it up with some flashy new pulls.
See these pulls? Neither could I, and I really couldn’t see them from across the room. I decided it was time for a quick change. I went to Hobby Lobby because they have a good selection of pulls at great prices – especially when they are on sale.
I found these cute flowers and even better they were 50% off. They reminded me of costume jewelry from the 1950’s. Don’t you think they look like a pair of earrings from that era???? That’s why I love them. We have some mid-century going on in our 1928 bungalow.
I thought this would be one-minute project. I would unscrew the old knobs, and screw in the new ones. It turns out that the new ones were a tad thicker and wouldn’t fit in the hole that was currently in the bar.
Down to the basement I went to get the drill. The quick action of this bad boy made the opening the size needed for the new knobs.
Even though I had to make a minor adjustment to the bar, this project was super fast. Plus, it is just what the bar needed. Some vintage flower knobs to go with the vintage bar.
I always love to see how a five minute project can make a difference.
Do you have any quick fixes that you are proud of? Please share.
