Make-a-Face Dresser - Image Collection

An assortment of drawer pulls and a little imagination can revive a plain old dresser (or rehab a tag-sale find). Plan a fun outing to the hardware store to select the perfect knobs and handles.

What you'll need

  • dresser
  • screwdriver
  • lightweight plaster material, such as Spackle, or wood filler
  • putty knife
  • fine sandpaper
  • paint and brush or roller
  • assorted drawer pulls
  • repositionable glue dots
  • drill and bits
  • adhesive craft foam (optional)

How to make it

  1. Use the screwdriver to remove existing drawer hardware. With the putty knife, fill the holes with plaster material (such as Spackle) or wood filler.

  2. Sand and paint the dresser as desired.

  3. Design a face by attaching the drawer pulls temporarily with glue dots. (Keep in mind that you'll want the drawers to open and close easily with the new pulls.)

  4. When you have a face you like, drill holes as needed, then secure the new hardware. Cut and adhere craft foam pupils, if desired.
