Cabinet Door Changes

I'm changing my upper cabinets so they swing to the side instead of lifting up. The picture shows the completed cabinets. Now the problem I haven't solved is hiding the old holes. Does anyone have any ideas for a small decorative item that would hide the holes??

There are wood plugs and stain that will do the trick. Any hardware store (Ace, Lowe's, etc) will have different sizes of wood plugs and different colours for the stain. That would probably be the fastest and cheapest way to take care of the problem.

They also have small clear and colored medallions you could put on there.

jeepsrule....This is a tough one. If you try to plug and refinish, I think it will be obvious. The only thing I can think of is a small medallion. Some furniture manufacturers use a small metal/bronze medallion about the size of a dime to decorate their product. Maybe you can find a small flat medallion that would look good.

Or a furniture button with the string hole on the back. Some you can cover with a fabric of choice and snap together.

I think I'll look for the medallion idea. This sure makes it easier to see in and access items in the cabinets.

I've been in the furniture business for 35 years. We never put the hinges on the short side. Reason, the door will sag from the weight and short distance between the hinges. If you used a European hinges, they could be adjusted.
If you didn't do before you acted, I would have left the knob where it was. Now your left with a ugly hole. Sorry
