I’m going to dust off my “Hey! Original hardware is awesome! Leave it be!” soapbox for a minute.
Erica knows what I’m talking about. She took this dresser from battered and beat into lovely, layered and new in blue. But she kept the old pulls. And why not! They are charming and match the character of the dresser.
Just because a piece of furniture is old and funky doesn’t mean the pulls have to go, (unless of course, you are missing a few). Take another look and see if they could benefit from a little spray paint too.
That’s what Erica did here. And if she hadn’t? Well, I photoshopped a little after version of my own. Bland stainless steel. It’s just not the same, folks, see what I mean? See more from Erica on her blog The Polka-Dot Umbrella.
