How To DIY Wood Knobs


When we painted our kitchen cabinets we wanted to save money anywhere we could.  We reused the pulls for the bottom cabinets and decided to DIY our own wood knobs for the top cabinets.  It's really no surprise that we decided to DIY them because we love to DIY everything.  I wanted the knobs to have some personality but still be clean and simple.

  • Sand edges lightly by hand just to take off any splinters left from cutting
  • Mark the center of each dowel
  • Drill hole in each center to fit t nuts
  • Hammer the t-nuts in to the holes you pre-drilled
  • Stain or paint knobs in your choice of color

That's it! Now you can gaze at your pretty knobs.  You can DIY your own wood knobs for a fraction of the cost of buying new ones, and they are very easy to make.  They are simple and unique looking!  I love how our wooden knobs tie in with the bottom cabinets and bring some warmth into the top cabinets.

  2. Found you in the Wednesday Showcase... thanks for sharing! We're moving this weekend, and the first thing I want to do is face-lift the kitchen cabinets before I fill them. This is a great idea... I love how simple and natural-looking it is. :)

    1. Yes definitely do it before you fill them, you do not want to see the mess we had here from having to empty out all the cabinets.
