A Simple Update

One of the simplest and least expensive ways to update a piece of furniture is with new hardware.  For example with this dressing table I found for $200.

It was already cleaned up and painted this lovely shade of light cream when I bought it, but the drawer pulls just weren’t doing it for me…

…so with a quick trip to Home Depot and eight bucks I was able to find these decorative pulls that fit the style of the piece.

I removed all the old hardware with a nail file while chatting on the phone (who says you need a screwdriver?) and added the new ones.

Even though it was a simple fix that took less than five minutes, it made the piece feel more expensive and refined.

If you have a few extra minutes and a few extra bucks lying around, you could easily update a nightstand or a dresser!
