Update a simple glass butter dish by adding a bent piece of silverware. Glue to top using a good adhesive like E-6000. It's probably best to wash by hand.

The knobs and handles for kitchen cabinets are so expensive unless you want to settle for plain old wooden knobs. Here is how my husband and I were able to have something a little fancier with lots less money.

I wanted some unusual tie-backs for my curtains. So I had the idea to take two beautiful old silverplated spoons that I owned and I bent them back into a "U" shape.

I was wondering if anyone knew how to bend silverware to use as cabinet knobs and drawer pulls? I have both forks and spoons I want to use for this.

Thanks for your help.
