Hardware Help

I'm not so sure I ever talked about our new-to-us vintage bedroom nightstands. They were a craigslist find {surprise, surprise!} and as soon as I saw them I knew I wanted them.

For a couple weeks they sat with their original pulls {which weren't terrible by any means}, but ever since seeing Lindsay and Aubrey's nightstands I have wanted drop ring pulls.

Recently I ordered enough to replace the old pulls and I am pleased with the mini-makeover!

It's the little things that make me smile. Enjoy your Thursday, friends!

Those are great looking nightstands. My husband and I are trying to agree on a design for our nightstands (he's a furniture maker so we get to design what we want) but he's not sold on closed storage. I'll need to show him this pic to convince him :)

What an amazing find! I have to say that I love the original pulls, but the new ones certainly fit your style much better.

Cute! I want some like that, but I am space limited, so all the cute ones are too big :( Great find

Excellent cheapy makeover, girl! Loving the drop pulls and the finish.

I wonder if my fat dogs could fit on two of those floor pillows stitched together... It's sooo pretty.

Amazing how knobs can totally change the look of a dresser. I refinished a vintage dresser years ago when I was 15 (omg that was almost 20 years ago...yikes) and I replaced the acanthus shaped pulls with modern knobs. And guess what I still have that dresser and wish I kept those pulls on it...can't believe it's been that long, feels like yesterday. The dresser was left behind by the family we bought the home from...no CL back then!
