obsessions

Hi there chickies – how goes it? I’m having the best time this week playing around. (I know. I play around a lot) Anyhoo…I did this tutorial some time back on the easiest, and quite possibly the coolest and unique-est diy wine corks made from drawer pulls. Since that time, I can’t pass a drawer pull with the same “it’s a drawer pull” attitude.

Additionally, since that time, said tutorial has been fine tuned and perfected. But first…

Thought I’d show you my inspiration – a cork which was made from an antique door knob. I love that thing. And I love my bestie for her sweet generosity. The corks on the side are just a few I’ve made. (At the risk of digressing too much, I really am not a drunk. I just love pretty wine corks.)

NEW TIPS: It can be downright difficult to screw the pull into the cork properly. First. Get a smaller cork (3/4″ in diameter at the top). I got a bag of six corks here for $1.99.

As for screwing the drawer pull into the cork, use a small drill or even a nail to start the hole and have it centered.

That’s it. Wine cork away! (but not so much that you appear to be a drunk)

What’s your current obsession?
