How to Make Knobs With Stones

Easy

My rental apartment bathroom has this old vanity with very dated knobs that I really didn't like. I didn't want to spend a lot of money replace them so I opted to make my own with dollar store stones! Turns out is was very easy to do.

These are the original knobs that I removed by simply unscrewing them. Since I'm a renter, I'll just hold on to them until I move out and put them back.

I used river stones from the dollar store and selected ones that had a flat surface on one side.

I sanded the back of the stone to add more grip for the glue.

    I'm guessing you sanded the stones to remove the coating. Just to let you know, that coating is silicone, and I learned that it can be removed with turpentine. Just an FYI.

      I actually have a ton of these stones left over from my backsplash I did last year. I should definitely do these on the knobs! Would look great and what a great idea!

    I collect pretty rocks. All I need are ones with a flat side, right?
