Clay covered drawer handle

It's been a very long time, but I found my way back to the clay table. Yay! The downstairs bath is getting a facelift. An inexpensive facelift. Which means, my husband has to stay OUT of it! No tearing out walls, ceiling tiles (no matter how ugly they are), absolutely NO DEMO. It is simply "polishing the turd". I love that ladylike saying. :)

The dark brown cabinet is now white.

The shower curtain is the new color palette. Since monitor colors vary, it's 4 different stripe colors: pale, medium, and dark navy blue. And a turquoise blue that matches the rug, that is being guarded by cute girl.
The little bit of brown paneling on the wall is now white also.

Here is the 1st draft drawer handle:
Stamped with micro beads pushed in along the design.


Then with white paint. The only thing I DON'T like...the paint takes away from the shininess of the micro beads. Next time I will try to keep the paint away from the bead holes.

One last (blurry) pic of it on the drawer. What do you think? I like it. I don't loooove it. But I think it's cute enough to stay. The soft, whimsical look is a nice contrast to the straight stripes on the shower curtain.

Well, I love it! And if you aren't all that crazy about it, you have your clay out and can make another one!

I love it too. I'm planning to paint our main bathroom using similar colours and I think your handle adds the perfect touch of whimsy to the room. Bravo!

Thank you both!
Susan, it's grown on me. Now that I have all 3, I'm smitten. :) Plus they are 10x cuter in person. I wish I were a better photographer.
