DIY leather drawer pulls

Maybe you found a piece of discarded furniture on the side of the road that you brought home to give a makeover.  Maybe you are just looking for a change to spruce up your existing cabinetry.  Whatever the reason you’re looking for new hardware, one thing is for certain: knobs and pulls can get expensive, especially the more unique styles!  Grace at Design Sponge found a cheap way to DIY her own handles, making them out of an old belt.  Clever!  It’s a great use for any belts you have that are starting to wear out or no longer fit properly, or you can surf through your local thrift shop for belts to cut up.  [how to make leather drawer pulls]
