I had to find knobs... I thought these worked
before... I was not happy with my white paint choice. It worked out well in the end

This was a find from our salvaged house last fall. I knew that it had potential but I never thought that I could get it to look this good. It will be taking a trip to the Junk Jubilee this coming weekend in Des Moines, Ia.
