Kitchen cabinet knobs can turn cheap cabinets into, well, cheap cabinets that LOOK like more expensive cabinets! Details are everything when you are decorating or remodeling, and having unique kitchen cabinet knobs can give the look you want. Here are some ways that you can make kitchen cabinet knobs yourself.
The easiest way to make your own kitchen cabinet knobs is to purchase the knobs already made, but unfinished. You can paint the knobs, finish them, even cover them in Fimo clay designs that you've made. They are easy to install because the hole has already been drilled.
If you want a uniquely natural look to your kitchen, try making kitchen cabinet knobs out of river rocks. What you do is drill a hole through the rock using a diamond drill bit. Note: This takes special equipment, as it will take forever using drills that you have at home.
After you drill the hole in the rock that you want for your kitchen cabinet knob, make an indentation in the rock so that the head of the bolt that you use won't be as apparent. You can do this with a diamond drill bit used for rounding corners.
Measure carefully on your kitchen cabinet to determine where exactly you want your kitchen cabinet knob to go. Then drill a hole that matches the size of the bolt.
Attach the kitchen cabinet knob securely.
