How to paint a knob

I love hand made or hand painted things because they remind me of childhood. Even though I wasn’t at all a little artist in my early years, now all these creative instincts, if I can name them so, come back to me. I am one of those who prefer to do something on their own than buying one.  This is why when I saw what a great job a china cabinet owner did with the cabinet’s knobs, I thought I should share it with everyone.

The owner had an old china cabinet which she restored by painting it, but she still wasn’t happy about the old knobs. Instead of buying some new ones, she had a great idea: to paint them two. And the process is not difficult at all. First you should clean the knobs and spray them with a matt paint. After this first layer has dried, you can spray a base-coat color on your choice.

After this color has also dried you may mix paint (a different color from the first one) and glazing medium until you get a thin consistency. Apply the mixture with a brush, wait for 30 seconds, then wipe the paint from the flat surface. This color will remain only in the cracks.  Wait to dry and then spray a protective layout.

This way you will have your own personalized knobs, you will spare some money and you will also have a great time expressing your own creativity.{found on creativekismet}.
