First, this is just a quick post to say thank you so much for all of your kind comments yesterday! What an awesome day. I really enjoyed hearing from each one of you. Remember, you have until Sunday to get your comment in if you want to participate in the drawing. So if you didn’t get one in yet, you still have time.
Second, I just wanted to share the fix for farmhouse dresser no. 5.
You remember, from the other day …
I had issues with the non-hardening filler that I used to fill some old drawer pull holes. It resisted the milk paint and ended up looking like this …
Although I badly wanted to go along with some of you who said it was fine as is, in the end the spots really bugged me, which is what the majority of you said as well.
And some of you had some really great ideas for fixes. I loved the idea of adding vintage wallpaper or floral napkins to the drawer fronts. I thought the idea of re-filling the holes and adding some vertical stripes of paint to camouflage them was awesome too.
But in the end, I decided different hardware was the easiest fix for me. Also, the spacing of the holes was just right for some glass drawer pulls from D Lawless Hardware.
Unfortunately, this fix was expensive at $38.90 for 10 glass drawer pulls. It was a costly lesson about non-hardening filler and milk paint not mixing. At least the rest of you don’t have to learn it the hard way like I did.
And although I think I preferred the look of the single knob over the look of a pull, I do think these pulls fit this dresser. I feel better about not leaving the poorly filled holes as they were too. So thanks to everyone who left a comment on that post with either an opinion or an idea for a fix. All were much appreciated!
