PART I HANDLES, HARDWARE, HINGES, AND HOOKS - furniture accessories

have been greatly enhanced by the right accessories.




Here I coordinated the handle shape and color with the fabric lining
Paint trim the same color as your hardware


Mimic the shapes you are working with in your piece

It's not always easy to find the perfect hardware but persist till your happy


You can bring different elements together.


Sometimes sticking to what's original is best

  1. Great little "tutorial" here. I do think the hardware really makes the piece. I have seen some great looking pieces that had crappy hardware and it ruined the feel of the piece. Happy Sunday- xo Diana

  2. Thanks, Kristy!
    Yes, it makes me think! I am just starting painting furniture and I never know what to do with the hardware! I love crystal knobs, but they don't work in every piece. So far I only had 2 pieces with hardware and one was such a hassle to replace that I painted it the same color as the rest. The other one I painted but it would look cute with a crystal knob. I will get back to your post next time I am in doubt!
