Do you have old pendants or antique brooches hanging out in your jewelry box?  I always say that vintage items are only valuable if you use them.  If you have some that have been collecting dust for way too long now is the time to put them to use. So drag them out of that box and upcycle them into adorable knobs for your furniture.  I love my blingety bling one I put on my jewelry cabinet.

Mine isn’t an old brooch bur rather a pendant from the {styled} by Tori Spelling Glitz collection.  You can find these at Joann Fabrics or Michaels.  But any pendant or brooch should work if it has a flat back.

This is a super easy project.  All you have to do is to use your flush cutters to remove the pendant top.  Then you just use a metal file or sandpaper to smooth out the rough edge.

Then go into your knob stash.  What??  I am the only hoarder of old furniture pulls and knobs?  You can’t be serious right?

My name is Beckie, and I am an old knob and pull hoarder.

Drawer pull and knobs

Pull out an old knob that is a close match to the finish of your pendant or brooch and use your Gorilla Glue Epoxy and slap some on top of the knob.  Then add your brooch/pendant.  Leave it undisturbed for several hours.
