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.
How to Make Knobs With Stones
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 used epoxy glue to attach the bronze caps nuts in the center of the stone (I got the cap nuts on amazon.com).
I let the glue dry and then used bolts to attache them to the drawer.
This is so simple to do and what's great about this project is that you could use the same idea to make knobs out of just about anything! If you want to make some of your own, there's more info on what I used in a short video on my blog.
