a simple knob.

when lovebird and i first got married and moved into our first little home.
{it's an apartment, but it feels like a home.}
we refused to pay the hefty installation fee of 
mounting our tv above our fireplace.
even though that space had "i exist only to hold a tv" written all over it,
i wasn't willing to spend hundreds of dollars and give in. 
lovebird and i, not being big tv watchers (still to this day),
 decided a little table of some sort would do the trick.
we ran to trusting target, and sure enough we found a little table.
when i say little, i'm also talking a ticket price of $20.
for these first two years of marriage, that little table has done us well;
it perfectly perfumed it's job while looking somewhat decent.
however, i happened to stumble across a complete gem the other day.
ya know, the kind that has a big red clearance sticker on it.
disregarding it's few scratches and missing door knob,
i snatched it right up and put it in it's place before lovebird could 
even think of saying "no".
ideas of painting, sanding, turning into a
 vintage masterpiece raced through my head.
however, i decided to do simple, {at least for now}.
i'm proud to say this little guy only cost me $4.89 for "repairs",
and i couldn't have asked for a better home for our tv. 
trust me, i know there are hundreds of more impressive makeovers out there.
some are very time consuming and involve heavy labor-
which of course, produces a beautiful end product.

that being said, sometimes a little knob or two can do the trick,
and produce a just as lovely outcome.
a makeover doesn't have to be big, to be right.
now, go splurge and by yourselves a couple knobs to transform
a piece you are slightly tired of.
it will feel brand new all over again. 
p.s. knobs are all half off at hobby lobby right now! 
ready, set, run!!

  7. Seriously spooky! I was JUST looking at my dresser and thinking how I needed to go buy new knobs for it. I wish I had a Hobby Lobby close to me!

    LOVE the new table and knob. More than perfect, if you ask me.

  10. I love a good deal. We have a little table in our living room that sits by my favorite chair. It has a small drawer in it where we keep all our chargers. Otherwise it holds my books and coffee. I got it on clearance at Target for $10. What a deal!

  13. I've been browsing on-line more than three hours lately, but I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s beautiful worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the net will be much more helpful than ever before.
