I was looking for some sleek modern hardware for these fluted barn doors I made, and found some brass half moon handles on etsy that I loved the look of — the only problem was the largest ones I could find were 6″ tall, and they were listed for almost $200.

I decided to DIY the hardware I was envisioning in my head in a bigger size and for WAY less. I made this modern half moon handles for less than $10 all in and I’m OBSESSED.

You can actually make diy wood handles look like metal — the secret is to sand well so the wood is super smooth and then prime them so none of the wood grain shows through the gold spray paint.

Check out the video below for a video of the process and find the links to the exact materials at the bottom of this post.

To make diy wood handles look like metal — the secret is sanding well so the wood is super smooth and then priming them so none of the wood grain shows through the gold spray paint.

Instructions

step 1

cut the wood round in half

step 2

sand both sides of the wood round to remove any rough areas or edges

step 3

prime the 1/2 wood rounds and copper couplings, let dry

step 04

spray paint the primed pieces with the gold metallic spray paint, let dry

step 05

attach to door by driving a screw through the back until it just peeks through on the front, add a washer then the copper coupling and drive the screw the rest of the way through until it's secure into the back of the half moon wood piece, but not so far that it pokes through the front.
