Duck Egg Dresser With Rope Pulls

I got this dresser off CL and painted it in my favorite chalk paint color:  ASCP Duck Egg.  I also didn't like the fan detail on the small drawer so I filled that in with wood putty.  I hated the original hardware, but didn't want to spend a fortune on new hardware.  I had seen a tutorial for rope pulls on Lake Girl Paints and decided to give it a try.  The link is for their tutorial... I followed that.  It was super easy.  The best part was that the rope only cost $7.50.  I made 14 pulls and 1 knob and still have over 1/2 of the rope left for future projects!

  2. Nice makeover! The rope pulls sort of give it a beachy feeling!

  3. Nice! I am working on a chest of drawers and I'm replacing the handles with ropes, too! It's nice to see that someone else has done it so I can get an idea of what the finished product will look like! I like!

  4. Nice makeover, cool rope drawer pulls.
