DIY Leather Pulls

DIY, Projects

  1. Love it for the closet doors, but not feeling it so much drawers. A little overwhelming for the drawers.

    I love the pulls; they’re so different. Didn’t the lateral file cabinet come with pre-drilled holes though for other handles? If so, how did you handle that?

  8. Amanda says:

    Do you know what the overall length was on the cabinet pulls you made? they look longer than the 10″/4″ pulls for the closet doors.

    • Shayna says:

      The closet pulls were definitely longer in total length than the cabinet pulls. The overall finished cabinet pull length is 2.5″. For the total amount of leather you’ll need, I’d double that, and add an extra inch for the “fold” portion. Hope that helps! 🙂

    Where were the closet doors from. I love them and the leather idea

  10. Jen says:

    Hi! For the desk and file cabinet, the total length was 2.5″ before folding? Just trying to calculate how much leather I need to order! Thanks!

    • Shayna says:

      The total length once the pull is folded is 2.5″ long. In order to make the pull, you’ll need to double that, and add extra leather to create the top fold. I hope that helps! 🙂

    I love these pulls, and thanks for explaining your method so thoroughly. I am wanting to create similar pulls for my drawers but wondered how these have stood up to regular use over the years? Did they last well or did you have any major issues with them? And looking back, is there anything you might do differently if you were to do this again?

    • Shayna says:

      I’m so glad you enjoyed the tutorial! Unfortunately, I sold this home not too long after sharing this tutorial. While I can’t speak to how the pulls have held up, I can say I wouldn’t hesitate to follow this same tutorial if I wanted to recreate the look. They were sturdy pulls and well made. I hope that helps!
