Repurposed Vintage Door Knobs
One of my favorite things to do on the weekend is peruse vintage flea markets. I have noticed that you can find vintage door knobs in abundance and for a decent price. They come in various colors and styles and in in different materials like glass and metal as well. Sometimes you can even find the original matching door knob plate. I thought I’d put together some ideas for repurposing vintage door knobs. The more patina there is, the more beautiful and unique the project. Here are seven fantastic inspirations for repurposed vintage door knobs.
This is a vintage glass door knob photo holder from Etsy shop, RustiqueArt.
Here is another clever and fun idea for a photo holder.
I love the idea of using a pretty glass door knob as a curtain tie back.
Here is a cute idea from Restoring the Roost in which she made a useful door knob hanger for aprons in her kitchen. She also suggests this for hanging coats in your mudroom.
I love this similar idea for a door knob coat rack using salvaged wood. It doubles as a pretty art piece as well.
A great way to display and organize jewelry, here is a door knob necklace holder.
This may be one of my favorites and one I may have to steal! I like this idea of using the door knob and the plates for holding towels in your bathroom from Not Just a Housewife.
I hope you enjoyed these fun ideas. Can you think of more creative ways to repurpose a door knob?
All great ideas, I especially like the necklace holders and towel holders.
Thank you, Jil!!
I think I’m in love.. These crafts are quite interesting, yeah, especially the door knobs thingie..
I really liked the necklace holder – that’s what caught my eye first. =D Dumb question here tho – how do we attach them to the board? I’d really like one for my bedroom.
I was thinking that too, Tina! I couldn’t find the original source either. I think if you used a strong bonding agent like E6000 it would work.
I love all these ideas! How are the knobs attached for the coat rack?
Hi Michelle! My guess would be an industrial strength glue like E6000.
