Look! Knobs Transformed with Origami Paper

One of our friends, Nancy, can take the simplest things and spin them into gold. Here's something she did to spice up the knobs of a plain wooden bureau she rescued from the curb. After repainting it and sanding the top, she used Japanese Origami Paper to cover the wooden drawer knobs and make the bureau all her own. Here's a closer look...

To transform the bureau's plain wooden knobs, Nancy just used eastern-inspired, patterned origami paper (she purchased hers through Dick Blick, but you can get it at many craft stores). Nancy just glued the paper on with modge-podge and then put a few more coats of modge-podge on top as it dried. We love how the simple (and subtle) transformation makes the bureau look warmer and gives it a personality. Also that each knob is unique!
