An easy DIY with a big return on investment: swapping out your standard-issue hardware for hand-painted wooden knobs.
Spotted on Lushlee, these painted pastel knobs could be used to match or stylishly mismatch a dresser.
Above: The inspiration: Nuppi hand-painted knobs from Finnish designer Riikka Kantinkoski. For a similar rough-hewn look, don't bother sanding or priming first. (But do so for a smooth, opaque finished product.) Use painter's tape to block the top while painting the base.
Above: 1 and 1/4-inch Natural Wood Mushroom Knobs; $2.84 on Amazon. Many paint suppliers sell 8-ounce samples of their wall paints, an easy way to match a color you already have at home; Glidden offers 2-ounce Paint Testers—brush included—for about $1 (R).
