My wife wanted to re-purpose the pulls to a satin nickel color. After a few quick sprays of some Rustoleum spray, we have some “satin nickel” pulls.
While waiting for the paint to cure, we decided to move the dresser up to my daughter’s room. It’s already loaded up and ready for use. I figure I’ll attach the hardware tomorrow night once the paint is cured. We still have plans to rehab my bachelor days Ikea dresser for use in my son’s room, and told my wife I “need” another tool to effectively get the job done (efficiently). But in the meantime, I’ll decided to tackle the dresser’s weak point by gluing the MDF panels into the drawers.
About $250 (retail) worth of parallel clamps to tighten up 3 drawers in a $100 particleboard/MDF dresser. Somehow, that feels kinda wrong.
