I've been renting my flat in San Francisco for a few years now, and ever since I moved in, I've been bothered (make that incensed) by the cabinet hardware in the kitchen. The real dilemma? Twenty-four cabinets, combined with an obsessive love for leather pulls priced at $20 each (do the math and that's a $480 investment). The good news is that I figured out a way to get the cabinet pulls of my dreams and still have enough money to eat lunch. Want to give it a try? See my DIY video for step-by-step instructions (you'll need to source the materials outlined below). Above: The finished product, inspired by a sophisticated pull spotted on Remodelista. Here's What You Need: • Vegetable-tanned Leather Hide , $20 on Etsy (a single hide yields 30 cabinet pulls). • Matte Behr Interior Paint in white; $11.23 at Home Depot. • Nuts and Carriage Bolts ; $5.44 for a pack of 20 at Home Depot. • General Tool 818 Scratch Awl; $6.60 at Amazon. • Paint Brushes; $1.15 each at Home Depot.
