KNOBS + PULLS FOR MAKEOVERS: DO THEY REALLY MATTER?

Sometimes, the hardest decision I make with a dresser makeover or any makeover that requires drawer knobs and pulls, is just that. Do you leave the original pulls? Do you paint the knobs? Or do you replace them with new knobs and pulls?


Knobs really can make or break the look and style of a piece!

So the answer.....It depends on the piece. Some pieces need their original pulls and knobs to show their age and as long as they are in good condition, I leave them. To give a new look to old brass pulls or knobs, I simply rub on some Brasso and the transformation is amazing once I rub it back off!

However, sometimes it's awesome to add new ones that are unique or make a statement.

I've compiled some of my favorites for you below, you can change the entire style and look of a dresser or desk by just changing out the hardware!

My very favorites are the mercury glass or stylized such as the themed sets like beach shapes!
