Do something new with the old

Are you bored with your furniture or do you have to switch it from one room to another and think it won’t go?  Hold on!  Before you decide to donate or toss, there is one easy and affordable thing to try and that is: replace the handles.

I’ve done a few tests to illustrate what I mean. For example on the left side, you can see a 4-drawer chest rather contemporary with linear handles in an antique Pewter finish for a little boy’s look.  On the right side, I replaced the handles for new ones featuring a chic design and a curve in the middle in a shiny finish. This subtle change gives it a feminine and refined look.

The 4-drawer chest in your son’s room can then become a storage piece in the hallway or vice-versa. The change could also be more drastic, it depends what your needs are.


Here’s another example, it is a 5-drawer chest with a White distressed finish with wooden knobs, which give it a country style. And yet, this same chest can also borrow transitional lines if we add delicate metal pulls.  We could also change for flower metal knobs for a young girl or colorful plastic knobs for a younger child.

There are many options, it’s up to you to refresh your furniture!
