handle solutionAugust 31st, 2009 in member junk
i had this old metal chest of drawers that i painted white. the original handles were missing and no matter what i found, nothing seemed to look 'right' with the piece. as i have said before, i find a lot of inspiration in nature. well, i was doing a morning walk and happened to look down and see a flat rock - well, guess what?... tell me what you think...i kind of like it..
i just took the rock and held it in my hand and wrapped and wrapped the wire around the rock and twisted it off in the back and ran it through the pull holes on the front of the drawer and twisted it off. i probably should have done some treatment at the hole, but you could add something there if you want. the first one i tried i cut a piece of wire approximately 12" long, that ended up being too short. so i finally used a piece 16" long. play with it till you get the desired length.
kind of fun, i think.
