But it does have to do with this piece of advice: change the knobs on a piece of furniture you have, or add them. They can completely change its look and dress it up!
A few years ago my mom and I discovered the beauty of Athropologie's knob collection and we've never looked back. Theses two knobs are in my room back home. I remember when I bought the be-dazzled ones, I was so excited. They still make me break out in a big smile! [yes mom, one day I will come back for them ;-]
Last year when I was living in a little town house in San Francisco my roommate gave me her old desk. We fixed it up a little with the yellow knobs. I think they gave it a kick of life. Sadly I don't have a picture of it. I nabbed the knobs and we pushed the desk out on the curb when we moved out! The iron(?) stands below the knobs are shelf brackets, also found at Anthro. The shelving unit above the desk was pretty cute.
Remember, go frolick in the sun!
