I shared my new, large dresser on Monday. A very well built, albeit boring, chest of drawers. I had decided to drill new holes to replace the existing pulls with new, pretty knobs. Well, that is time consuming so I decided to shop around and see if I could find 3″ drawer pulls that will do the trick instead. Home Depot was a bust. They have great single knobs but are sorely lacking in drawer pulls. I then remembered that Cassie from Primitive and Proper redid her kitchen (swoon) and the drawer pulls were from D. Lawless Hardware.
What a fantastic site! I fell in love with the antique clear glass pulls. After getting in touch, they kindly agreed to ship them to me for my project. They are a beautiful Octagon shape with an oil rubbed bronze finish. I also ordered two matching knobs for the two, small top drawers of the dresser (for those I will have to drill the new holes and fill the existing). I feel the glass pulls will set off the paint and add sparkle. Now, what color? I am going with General Finishes Persian Blue (my favorite!). Here is my Whitewashed Farmhouse Dresser that I did previously in Persian Blue with glass pulls.
This new chest is a much heavier looking piece and I am not going to add the whitewash as I did on the one shown in the pic above. It needs to remain somewhat stately and not so light. Now I am like a kid who can’t wait for her present to arrive in the mail! I really want to get going on this one! Just keeping you in the loop 🙂
