If you are looking for something new and a bit different to do with your old cupboard, why not create your own stylish and easy concrete drawer pulls in just a few easy steps. I love working with concrete! Once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy to work with. And there is so much you can do with it.

This was the piece before I got to work.

You can use a silicone baking tray in any shape that you'd like. (The possibilities are endless!)

Pour the concrete into the mold, and then stick a a screw into the center of each mold.

Let them dry for about 48 hours (patience will pay off!).

Once the handles are fully dry, you can take them out of the silicone mold. Then sand them down on the corners for a fully smooth surface.

Then, you can screw them into your drawers.

It looks very stylish and rugged! I love how they came out, and I hope you like them as well. Give it a try yourself.
