How to make West Elm inspired Bin Pulls

An easy way to make unique West Elm inspired bin pulls! Yesterday, I shared my  HomeGoods table that I altered to look like my favorite  West Elm Bin Pull Console table .  I not only loved the iron legs of the West Elm table, but the bin pulls were amazing too.  I knew if I was going to even try to replicate the table, that I had to include the bin pulls.  I searched and searched for similar pulls, but came up empty.  That's when I got the idea to create my own pulls.
