Default Fancy drawer knobs for Drawers for Baby's room :)

Hi,

I got this chest of drawers for the nursery in Lidl and i was looking around for some cute drawer knobs for it when I got an idea online of just upcycling the ones that came with it. I found a cartoon owl online that i liked and did a little drawing of it. by using tracing paper using biro on one side and pencil on the back of the tracing paper i transferred the design onto the knobs and then painted them in using lots of different colours :)

I used acrylic paint and then gave them 2 coats of clear egg shell varnish.

Hi Mellissa, Good luck with the forthcoming arrival. Love your little owls. With all your ideas , i'd be inclined to go mad and decorate to whole chest of drawers !! Would look wonderful in your nursery.
