An easy DIY with a big return on investment: swapping out your standard-issue hardware for hand-painted wooden knobs. Spotted on Lushlee , these painted pastel knobs could be used to match or stylishly mismatch a dresser. Above: The inspiration: hand-painted knobs by Finnish designer and stylist Riikka Kantinkoski of  Weekday Carnival  and RK Design. Above: For a similar rough-hewn look, don't bother sanding or priming first. (But do for a smooth, opaque finish.) Use painter's tape to block the top while painting the base. Top: The 1 1/4-inch Natural Wood Mushroom Knobs are $3.30 on Amazon. Many paint suppliers sell eight-ounce samples of their wall paints, an easy way to match a color you already have at home. Above Bottom: Glidden offers two-ounce Paint Testers —brush included—for about $1. Go to our Hardware archive for more ideas.
