hand-painted knobs for sale!

so, earlier this week, when i hand-painted knobs for a client project, i came up with the idea that i might start painting and selling my own knobs! sooo, here i go!

first up, the flower collection:
Photobucket

there are the black and white ones, which are the "daisy knobs"
the burnt orange and cream with antiquing, which are labeled "orange knobs"
and there are the mustard/black/white patterned ones that are "poppy knobs"

i love them all together, as a mix-n-match kind of look, or you can order them in increments of 2's. they are $7 each, and every single one is hand-painted by me, and sealed off with your choice of gloss, flat, or satin finish. these knobs are 1.5 inches in diameter and are made of solid wood. they are also available in 2 inch diameter, for the same price.

next up, is the gray collection:
Photobucket

in the gray collection there are the "vine knobs", which are a gray/cream/white vine pattern, and then there are the "trellis knobs" which are white and gray. again, they are $5 each, and every single one is hand-painted by me, and sealed off with your choice of gloss, flat, or satin finish. these knobs are 1.5 inches in diameter and are made of solid wood. they are also available in 2 inch diameter, for the same price.

finally, there are the kids' knobs (or for those that prefer their knobs whimsical!):
Photobucket

the "circle knobs" are a light green, with blue, pink, yellow and white detailing, and
the "paisley knobs" are pink with pink, coral, green, butter-yellow and white detailing. again, they are $5 each, and every single one is hand-painted by me, and sealed off with your choice of gloss, flat, or satin finish. these knobs are 1.5 inches in diameter and are made of solid wood. they are also available in 2 inch diameter, for the same price.

here they are, used as cabinet knobs!

and here as a drawer knobs!

again, they'd be great for nightstands, drawer pulls, to dress up a piece of old furniture that you've painted, as basket pulls, side table drawer knobs, etc, etc!

  8. Oh I love these knobs! I'll be painting up my Goodwill desk this summer and I might just stop by to snag some of these knobs from you!

    What kind/brand of finish do you use? I'm working on a few similar projects and need something to coat/seal them!
