DIY: We have outdated hardware all throughout our home since our house was built in the mid 90's. We are on a budget, so a handy friend of mine told me to spray paint everything. The guy at Home Depot recommended this spray paint, and to use steel wool on the metal to help with saturation. It'll be interesting to see how it holds up with wear and tear, but for now I'm impressed!
Furniture and cabinets are just the tip of the iceberg. Drawer handles, knobs, and pulls are useful in every room of the house, especially when it comes to keeping your organized. They take just a few minutes to install, and their versatility is surprising. Some of these ideas you might have seen, but others might not have occurred to you.
IKEA hack: We have 8 different handle models in a variety of colours and materials. In all, you can choose from 64 different looks. All handles are delivered with screws that fit our fronts, which are 16mm thick.
