Coloured knobs

Resene – Get Creative, from Homestyle magazine

Pretty painted handles make handy hangers and double as cute kids’-room decorations.

Coloured knobs wall decorations

You will need:


  1. Come up with your knob layout design – we chose a cute, simple house shape.

  2. Apply your Resene testpot paint to the knobs, and leave to dry. A second coat may be needed for some colours. Use a variety of complementary colours.

  3. Arrange your knob on the floor in the pattern you want, before attaching them to the wall, paying attention to which colours are sitting next to each other.

  4. Measure and mark the knob placement on the wall, using Blu Tack to help if needed. Use a long ruler and step back regularly to check the placement. Drill holes for each and screw in the knobs.
