hey guys! i recently started a new challenge for the roost tribe. at the end of each month, members have the opportunity to share how they’ve used any of the elements or materials from the roost tribe. after everyone’s submissions are in, one member is chosen to be featured as the member of the month here on ghtr. it’s not mandatory, but just a fun way to share our projects and build a community. i hope you’ll enjoy seeing how this month’s winner used the roost tribe materials!

when we moved to our new house, we really looked for ways to improve the place without spending tons of money.  since we were working on a tight budget, we decided to keep the existing cabinets, and do what we could do spruce ‘em up.  replacing cabinet knobs is an easy way to do this, but even knobs can cost a pretty penny, so we decided to make our own!


wooden knobs cost a fraction of the price of designer knobs and with a little know-how can easily be transformed into something unique.

what you’ll need:

– plain wooden knobs (mine are natural woodcraft knobs)

– a small paint sample of the color you would like the knobs to be (lowe’s offers any paint color in 8oz samples)

– white spray paint (available at your local hardware store)

3m all purpose sanding sponge


the how to:

spray paint your knobs all white.  it’s helpful to go ahead and start the screw on the back of the knob so you have something to hold on to.   it’s also helpful to have something to stick the screw into to allow the knob to dry (i used a block of foam).

*once dry, paint the top coat color on with a brush, i used color #A64-2 called ‘sweet pea’ by valspar.

*once both layers are fully dry (usually after sitting over night) take the sand sponge and rough up the edges and center.  all of them will be a little different- which creates a cohesive yet eclectic vintage look.

easy breezy, right? :)

well i’m signing off for the day, it’s raining so i’m going stay in and start planning my garden for this summer, yay!  i also wanted to remind you that this weekend is the last chance you’ll have to take the roost survey and enter the giveaway!  i’ll be collecting all the data this weekend and will announce the winner on monday, good luck!
