How to upscale a chester drawers
Using chalk paint seems to be the answer these days! So many pretty colors and you can also distress, add a colored wax, new hardware, and even rub on stencils! I also paint the drawers and line with pretty Contac paper Here's a pretty one!
Here are some ideas for you:
Are you referring to a chest of drawers? If yes paint and change out the hardware. Hobby Lobby has a lot of choices and can send in the mail.

I love painting furniture to give it a more upscale look. I have several posts on my site with different types of paint. If you want to do it fast use spray paint but if you want a beautiful farmhouse look try milk paint or chalk paint. Here are a few posts.
