When I saw a piece of antique furniture with a plaster applique behind the knob I set out to see if I could recreate it.
Here was my victim, a very unassuming but "Good bones" piece of furniture
I found this knob at Hobby Lobby and pressed it into clay.
You can find the complete tutorial on molding plaster appliques HERE
I shoved pieces of a drinking straw into the clay to make a hole for the knob to go through
Then poured in my plaster
And Wa La!
I attached them to the cabinet front with E-6000 glue, then gave it all a coat of heirloom white paint and a brown glaze
I really like this piece, I think it is so perfectly imperfect and it looks so old!
Oh look, someone got Fancy Schmancy and actually staged her photo shoot!
I put the cabinet in my booth at Orange Tree and priced it at $55.
