Make Your Own No-Hardware Cabinet Pulls

Make Your Own No-Hardware Cabinet Pulls

For the DIY-inclined: a no-hardware-required leather drawer pull, spotted on the Swedish blog Fixa & Dona.

Above: Fold the leather pull in half, and use a belt punch plier or scratch awl and add four holes.

Above: Thread a length of leather lacing (instead of a bolt) through the cabinet holes.

Above: Attach the pull by threading the black leather cord through the holes of the pull and cabinet and then double tie a knot.

Above: Leather Factory Round Lace is $15.01 from Amazon. Photo via Rio Grande.
