Face-Lift for the Buffet

I absolutely cannot believe that this year is almost over.
Unlike most years, I am relieved. I won't quote what a friend said about how bad this year has been (ask me privately & I'll tell you)- it was hilarious, by the way- but, I will say that this has been the worst year of my life. Even so, it was still overflowing with blessings. God is still God. We made it through. We're just hoping that coming out of this worst year, 2012 will be our best!

So, on to the fun stuff :) ...

I am so excited about this simple little transformation that I was able to squeeze in during our Christmas break. I got a Hobby Lobby gift card for Christmas (one of the best gifts EVER!), so it didn't take long for me to use it. I still have a balance left on it too, so we'll have to hit it again soon! I had picked these glass knobs out once before on a trip there, but they weren't on sale & I hadn't decided yet if I was even going to use them or not. The day after Christmas, I got brave & quickly decided to go ahead with it. Also, it didn't hurt that all of their knobs, drawer pulls, handles, etc. were on sale for half off. Yay!

Since I "inherited" this beautiful buffet from my grandmother's house about a month ago, I knew I had wanted to fix the one handle that was missing. The holders were there, but no handle. I removed the two handles from the only two drawers on the buffet, and used one of them in place of the missing handle. Easy! Then, I just screwed in the new glassy knobs with a screwdriver
(so simple), and it was done!

Some before & after pics...


The beautiful, antique-y glass knobs...


I just love it! The darkened glass & the brass on the knobs go so well with the original handles. I wanted something that wouldn't stand out so much, and these are just perfect!

Thank you, once again, Hobby Lobby for making this girl happy!

Happy 2012!!


  1. Happy-happy New year! *woot-woot*

  2. I think the glass knobs look great with the dresser. So glad you got a gift card for HL, don't you just love that store. Thanks so much for sharing over at Sunday's Best.
