Regardless of whether you are a DIY individual or not, this article will demonstrate to you the reasonable way that you can do to give your Bookcase an elevating look.

You will just need a few materials to do this DIY project:

You can imagine the type of work when there are only two elements required for the project.

If you just follow these steps, this work will not take you more than a day! So the steps are as follows-
Step 1: Unscrew the handles from the doors and drill the existing holes again for a smooth final change.
Step 2: Add some wood putty in one hole, because you will be using a single hole for each of your doors.
Step 3: Before putting your new knobs in place, fill any holes left by old hardware with wood putty and paint that area.
Step 4: Attach the new glass knobs with screws.
The result turned out pretty well:
Few tips to keep in mind:
- Always buy extra knobs and screws for future use. You do not know when you will need them. So be prepared! Always.
There are different sizes of glass knobs in the stores, so choose the one you feel will match your door size.
