• Buttons – It's easy and inexpensive to add personality to drawer pulls by gluing on buttons, vintage brooches, and other small decorative objects. We haven't given EcoGlue a try yet, but it seems promising for projects such as this.
• Stones – Before you spend an arm and a leg on stone drawer pulls, raid your own rock collection or take a look around your local river or beach (just make sure gathering is legal) and make your own elegant knobs. Sea glass could be pretty, too. For tips, visit Care 2.
• Paint – Not into fabric or doodads? How about color? If you have metal hardware, remove it from the cabinet or drawer and paint using an eco-friendly spray paint.
• Corks – This option would actually replace your old knobs, but the cost is zero if you already have wine or champagne corks lying around. Check out Poetic Home for an example. Incidentally, we think cork pulls would look great alongside repurposed crates such as these also featured by Poetic Home.
