Default I need new knobs!!

Hello,

I'm jazzing up some old pine furniture for my daughter's room. I've sanded,
am about to print pink daisies on some of the drawer & door fronts,
varnished etc etc. (thanks to advice from some of you lot the wood has come
up a treat...we're really pleased with the result). However, the door &
drawer knobs are looking a bit tired & I thought about replacing them with
some plastic pink daisies I thought I had seen (at a very reasonable price)
from B&Q. However, I couldn't find them in the shop...perhaps I had
imagined them! Does anyone know where I can find such a thing? I need
about 20 knobs in total so they can't be too expensive. I've had a look on
the Internet & on eBay but everything I've seen so far is about 3 - 4 per
knob...too much!
Please let me know if you have an idea where I can find pretty girly knobs
(preferably pink & daisy-like - to go with a Hello Kitty bedroom for a
5-year-old).
Thanks,
Jo

You could always keep your original knobs, sand the fronts flat and
stick whatever designs you want on the front - making for complete
originality.

There are probably loads of ways of doing this, from cutting pictures
out of magazines, gluing them onto thin wood which you then cut out and
varnish the whole thing before sticking it onto the old knob, to glueing
plastic hairclips with girly designs onto the knobs.

Well you appear to have the skills to paint pink daisies so why not
get plain pine knobs and give them the same treatment? The sheds have
them and a few sizes, don't know the cost though...

I have vague memories of flowers on white background knobs as well but
I don't think they would go very well against varnished pine.

Try:-

http://www.toolstation.com/shop/Hard...es/d170/sd2598

They have packs of 10 plain knobs for under 6 quid. You could then
decorate as required.

It sounds intriguing but after some of the recent SPAM, I'm too scared to
look! :-|

Yep! I saw these too, but they were a little on the expensive side. I'm
still trying to look at Nick's suggestion of the 'wooden flower pegs' in
Studio catalogue www.24studio.co.uk but I can't find them!

Yes, daisy-shaped knobs in every colour you can think of. 2" diameter, I
think.

Boring or what!

item number 004-632-64KC
but if youve found real knobs theyd be better, save hacksawing the stem down.
