Spigot Faucet Handle Drawer Pulls

Spigot Faucet Drawer Knobs Tutorial | Pretty Handy Girl

Remember my son’s dresser that I gave a pop of color? As promised I’m back today to show you how I made the spigot handle drawer knobs. I purchased my vintage spigot handles from Etsy seller, Anything Goes Here. She has some other vintage handles available, so snatch them up quick. The only other materials you need can easily be picked up from the hardware store.

Materials:

  • Spigot faucet handles
  • #8 – 32 Machine screw nuts
  • #8 – 32 x 2″ Threaded machine screws
  • Washers
  • Needle-nosed pliers
  • Phillips head screwdriver

Optional: Clear sealer spray to protect knobs

Instructions:

Making these adorable vintage spigot knobs is an easy project. Line up your parts per handle. You’ll need 1 machine screw, 4 washers, and 3 nuts per handle. Start by threading one washer onto the machine screw. Thread the spigot handle onto the screw.

Thread a washer and nut behind the handle. Tighten with the needle-nosed pliers.

Thread another nut and washer onto the handle, but stop about 1.5″ – 2″ away from the handle.

Tighten the nuts against the drawer front on the front and back using pliers. (I’ve found that occasionally our knobs loosen. I might put a drop of LockTite on the nut outside the drawer front to stop it from loosening.)

I also decided to seal my faucet handles before assembly to protect them from chipping.

I love the variety of handles and the vintage look.

I think I have a love for turning mundane objects into handles, like my old paint brush cabinet handles!
