Need creative advice on redoing this old dresser
My husband has this old 4-drawer dresser left over from his junior high era and it's definitely seen better days!!! The pull handles are mismatched, several are broken and don't have any pulls (I unscrewed the missing one to measure it), and I'm not crazy about the color of the whole piece. We'd like to paint this white and replace the drawer pulls/handles to use in my 5 yr old daughter's room. However, the distance between the holes on the current drawer pulls measure 2 5/8" and I'm having trouble finding a replacement that would look cute in her room without spending a fortune. I wish I could even just paint these ugly drawer pulls, but like I said, they don't match and 2 are broken, so that's not even an option. I already have some paint, so I need creative and thrifty ideas on how to finish out this piece on a dime! :) Thanks!!
