Muuto-Style Cabinet Pulls on a Budget

As you might have noticed, we’re obsessed with the Dot Coat Hooks from Scandinavian design house Muuto. A few days ago, while walking the aisles of my hardware store, I came across a similar-looking raw wood knob, but in a miniature version, and made a command decision to try them out in my kitchen. It’s almost identical in shape, although smaller and made from white birch instead of oak. Here are the results (what do you think?).

The Project

Above: The Two-Inch Liberty Round Cabinet Knob of white birch is available at Home Depot for $1.68. On the right, you can see the larger Muuto Dot Coat Hook (measuring 6.75 inches in diameter); $37 at Huset, which offers the hook in several colors and sizes.
