This is my first post.

One of my craft tables had a broken handle. My boyfriend picked up some bare wood replacements for me to "fabulize".

I began by wrapping five pieces of double-sided single-release tape around the handle from the center out. I started this from the inside so that there wouldn't be a visible seam. After the tape was positioned I coated the remaining wood with a coat of Modge Podge. I sprinkled it with fine glitter and allowed it to dry. I peeled the backing off pieces two and four and sprinkled them with the same color of glitter as just used. I brushed off the excess with a dry paintbrush. I then peeled the backing off of tape pieces one, three, and five. I sprinkled them the other color of glitter.

I pulled two pieces of cardboard out of the recycling bin, stacked them, scored them with a utility knife, and poked the screws up through the holes. Now I had a little platform for coating them in Modge Podge. After two coats I couldn't feel the grittiness of the glitter.

The single-release, double-sided tape is called Terrifically Tacky Tape.

Can't you find something constructive to do?

Oh what fun! I have a couple of malamine cabinets, with plain white boring handles. I think a project like this would be a perfect way to spruce them up! Thanks for sharing that.

Candysniper- Not only do your drawer handles rule, your terminology is even greater!! I am loving the term "fabulize." The phrase I use when I tell my boyfriend that I'm going to make stuff is "Crafty Goodness."  Ex: "Honey, I am going to the store to pick up some "Crafty Goodness." or "Today is all about "Crafty Goodness." He is a huge mountain biking freak so when he goes out to ride he calls it his version of crafty goodness.

Thanks for sharing,
