Decorative drawer knob picture hangers are an easy upgrade to add interest to art or photos hung on your walls.
Do you ever run across something when you’re out shopping and you have no idea what you would even do with it, but for some reason you just can’t pass it up?
The worst is when you give in to that impulse but then whatever it was that you bought just sits and collects dust. I get so mad at myself when I let that happen.
Thankfully that was not the case when I couldn’t pass up the adorable selection of decorative drawer knobs that you can find at Hobby Lobby (this is not a sponsored post, I just love those drawer knobs). Combine that with a week when they sell them for 50% off? There was no chance of walking out of the store with out a few.
I bought a couple different varieties and later decided to use them in a mixed pattern on the vanity in our downstairs bathroom. However, once I put them together it just wasn’t the look I envisioned (that happens to me a lot!).
I loved the burlap covered knobs but they just didn’t complement the vanity. I wanted to figure out some other use for them and it just so happens that our picture gallery wall leading down the hall is just outside of the bathroom.
As I walked out of the bathroom, staring me in the face were the old brass picture hangers that I had been using for two of our frames hung on ribbons. Drawer knob picture hangers! I instantly knew that converting these knobs into picture hangers was the answer.
Three easy steps was all it took to get these decorative drawer knob picture hangers on the wall.
- Decorative drawer knob (you will want the type that has the bolt permanently attached to the knob so you can screw the knob into the hole)
- Wall anchor* (choose a size that is slightly smaller than the size of the bolt on the drawer knob, take the knob with you to the hardware store to be sure you get the right size)
- Drill (+ drill bit that is slightly smaller than anchor)
- Drill a hole at the spot where you want to attach your knob. The hole should be slightly smaller than your wall anchor.
- Using the hammer, tap the wall anchor into the hole you just drilled.
- Screw the drawer knob into the wall anchor.
*Note– these instructions assume there is no stud in the wall at the spot you are attaching the knob. If there is a stud, skip the anchor and instead predrill a hole with a drill bit that is the same size or slightly smaller than the bolt on the knob; then proceed to step 3.
The entire process took us about 10 minutes. They are easy to change out too, so you can easily switch to a different style of knob anytime you want a change.
