“For The Home” Drawer Knob Rehab

It’s Michelle Wells and today, I would like to share with you how I re-designed already available porcelain knobs with Tattered Angels products, for an entry way dresser rehab project I am presently working on.

Products used:
Tattered Angels Plain Jane Baseboard mist- GravelIvory
Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam – Clear
Tattered Angels Color Wash – White Wash
Polymer Clay – Transparent
E-6000 Adhesive
Heavy White Gesso
Electric Grinder
Silicone Mold
Heat Tool

After removing the preexisting porcelain knobs, I used an electric grinder to rough up the knob surface front for better adhesion.

I then formed roses using a silicone mold and polymer clay, baking per package instructions.

Once the roses had baked and cooled, I added them to each knob front using E-600 adhesive.

Once glue had cured, I used Heavy White Gesso over the entire surface of each knob.

After drying the gesso with a heat tool, I misted each with layers of Tattered Angels Plain Jane Baseboard Mist in Gravel and Ivory; also drying with heat tool between each layer.

To add a “wash” effect, I used Tattered Angels Color Wash in White Wash, and then sealed the knobs using Tattered Angels glimmer glam in clear.

With the amazing products from Tattered Angels, I have achieved shabby chic, flea market inspired draw knobs, that will further enhance the French Flea Market entryway dresser that is soon to become.
