Adding Color with Small Details

I’ve slowly but steadily been doing some changes to Jackson’s room lately.  It initially started when I walked into his room one day and had a spaz attack and frantically started rearranging his furniture.  {Does anyone else ever have those moment, or am I alone?}
There was no turning back.

The biggest change I want to do in his room is add color to it.  It’s painted a dark blue and has dark furniture, and currently decorated with vintage themed cars. While very cute, it lacks color and I’ve just been itching to add bright reds, yellows, and greens into his room.

The easiest way to add color that doesn’t cost a lot or a need to repaint the entire room? Add little hints of color with accessories throughout the room.

This was what I did this afternoon as a quick fun change to add in color and keep with the vintage d├ęcor in his room.  Here’s a before shot of his dresser.

I ordered these fun and colorful faucet handles last week and they just arrived in the mail.

And his dresser after!

Cute and simple fun new dresser knobs now!

I may even take some spray paint to the rest of the knobs and do them in a platinum silver just to make them pop a bit too.

I love them! Aren’t they perfect?

  6. Fun fun. Who would of thought of a faucet handle to be a drawer knob. You are so creative.

  7. Do the other knobs in red (or maybe black) but I think red would show up well!

    1. Thanks for the tip! I'm actually switch out the blue one for the black one that I painted yellow.
