Thank you so much for all your sweet comments about the new office space.

But did you notice anything?

Look at that white hutch with the scalloped trim on the top.

I’ve posted about it on the blog before.

Do you remember what it looked like before it ended up looking all cute and farmhousy in the corner?


It was a little different.

Let me show you.

It used to look just like this.

Just a little more vivid.

A little more of a statement.

I actually painted this piece for a photography campaign with FrogTape. They asked me to create a piece for their social and online media to represent one of their trends this year. The trend was SHINE with this colorful paint palette. I actually LOVE projects like this where I’m challenged to think outside my comfort zone and create something that I wouldn’t normally decorate with.

It’s exciting.

And exhilarating.

And temporary.

I knew all along I wouldn’t keep it these colors because they don’t work in my house.

I knew I would paint it back white all along. That’s why I chose it. I knew it would be perfect on this back wall in the corner.

I just needed some really fun affordable cabinet hardware to take it to the next level.

And then?

I found these.

Aren’t they the CUTEST?

And they are such good quality and so affordable.

Six to a package for under $19.

You can see them here.

I added them to the hutch and the matching piece in the bay window.

One quick hardware tip.

If you can’t find a matching pull for a piece (or if the holes are too far apart because the original hardware is vintage)–you can always double up on the knobs and add two knobs instead of one handle.

And in my hunt for hardware for this cabinet? I discovered SO MANY cute pull ideas over on Amazon. I love ordering hardware from there because you can easily return it if it doesn’t work and you can always find the exact number of pulls that you need (raise your hand if you’ve gone to the hardware store and you are one pull short from the pulls in the bin).

Here are some hardware pieces from my house and a few new discoveries that I’m planning on ordering for client pieces.

The Best Affordable Cabinet Hardware

I thought it would be easier if we broke these down into categories.

These knobs and pulls are in my new favorite category.

The gold just looks so fresh and current.

It’s such an easy and inexpensive way to update a piece of thrift store furniture.

And it looks so sturdy and substantial (and expensive even though they aren’t).

Clear crystal knobs are my go-to.

I have them in the kitchen—both the knobs and the pulls.

The knobs and pulls add a little bit of bling without being super overwhelming.

Any time I can’t decide which pulls to use because I’m not sure what will match with the colors on the painted piece?

Clear crystal works perfectly.

These are two examples of hardware in the house.

These swing knobs and black hardware are from the piece in the hallway.

In the dining room, I painted a thrift store piece white and added these round white knobs.

And then I found the CUTEST patterned knobs in black and white.

These are the cabinet pulls from the dressers in our bedroom.

I love the vintage look of them.

I also just found the cutest blue and white hardware I think I’m going to use for the dresser in the front living room.

A little before and after thrift store makeover.

And along the way I discovered all this affordable cabinet hardware for about five more projects.

Here’s to all the rabbit holes full of hardware. 🙂

    I avoid the knob section in Hobby Lobby because I think I just may be a knob/pull addict. 😏 So many cute choices .... and I love your doubling-up idea.

    Loved the finished product in all white with the fantastic knobs!!! But, also thought your creative paint scheme for Frog was amazing!!!! I know it’s not your personal style to keep in your home, but you were very clever with your design & color choices making a super fun piece of art! Wouldn’t that be great in an art room in a school? Kudos KariAnne for thinking out of your safe box! And congrats Baylor Grad Mom!!! 💚🎓💛 Thought of you this weekend as we went to an Aggie baseball game in College Station and drove right by Baylor. Enjoy the summer with the twins and know you are super proud of your Bear! Katy

    Oh my goodness! I practically have the same little hutch. I painted it white like yours a few years ago. I was thinking about replacing it, but now I’m glad I didn’t because I love everything you do! Thanks for making me love mine again!
