This next project is an absolute game changer!! You know when you’ve finished painting a brand new spanking piece of furniture and just can’t find the right drawer pulls? Today I’m sharing a fun way on How To Make Farmhouse Stamped Knobs and then add them to your fresh new piece and make it unique!
How To Make Farmhouse Stamped Knobs
I love that you are able to get two totally different effects when making your own Farmhouse Stamped Knobs. Using the ink gives a nice crisp image but using the paint gives the design a more handpainted feel to it. Because at the end of the day you want your furniture to be your creation and making your own knobs just adds a perfect personalised touch.
- Wooden Knobs – I used ones for this some from the gigantic stash I have from other projects but you can also find them over here in my shop
- IOD Decor Stamps – Knob Toppers
- IOD Ink – Stone Gray or China Blue
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Farmhouse White
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Artissimo
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Trophy
- 120 grit sandpaper
- Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint – Beeswax
- Chux Cloth
Step 1 – Remove your knob toppers from the packaging and using your 120 grit sandpaper lightly rub over the back of your stamps. This helps the medium that you use to adhere better to the stamps. Then take out your Flexi Stamper and remove the two transfer sheets from the thick clear film. Place onto the grid flexi stamper and you’re all ready to get stamping!
Step 2 – Mix up your milk paint. For this project, I used Farmhouse White, Trophy and Artissimo. You won’t need much so make sure if there is anything left over you place in a screw-top jar o save for later. Put the screw into the bottom of your knob because this makes painting so much easier and paint away. I gave each knob 2 coats.
Step 3 – Using your 120 grit sandpaper distress lightly around the edges of your knob. Be careful not to distress too much on the top of the knob because this will hide your stamping too much.
Now for the fun bit!
Step 4 – Load up your brayer with ink and apply to your stamp. I used the crackle stamp first. Then apply to your knob making sure that you don’t shift the stamp at all otherwise you will get a double vision effect.
Step 5 – Let the ink completely dry.
Step 6 – Apply some more ink to the grain sack knob topper and apply to your knob. Let dry completely.
Step 7 – Distress to your liking and seal with wax.
And you’re all done!
You can also play around with using paint. I just used Deco Art Americana – Lamp White which gives a nice handpainted feel to your knobs.
The possibilities are endless to what you can create because there are so many wonderful designs in the set. Perfect to add your own personalised touch to your creations.
