Gold Pulls for White Dresser

Yesterday, I shared with you the $20 dresser I repainted Pure White by Sherwin Williams. Previously, I kept the old hardware on the dresser, but I wanted a change. I ultimately decided on gold because we have a white kitchen with black hardware, and I wanted to switch it up.

I couldn't find anything I really liked in the size I needed (3.5 inches), that was also budget friendly. I needed 4 pulls total. The top of the dresser has 4 ring pulls that are custom to the piece, that I knew I was going to have to reuse. Considering all these factors, I found 4 inexpensive pulls, and spray painted them gold!

I purchased the 4 new pulls from Lowe's online. They were $3.97 per pull with free shipping. I liked the clean lines and thought they would compliment the ring pulls I had to reuse. They came in oil rubbed bronze, but I knew I was going to spray paint them anyway.

Here is a before shot of the old pulls (top), the new pulls, and the ring pulls I had to reuse (left).

I lightly sanded down the hardware and gave it 3 coats of Rust-oleum's Metallic Gold Spray.

I love the shine and metallic accent. I think the gold and bright white really modernize the piece. And doesn't every dresser need a little tassel to finish it off?!

See you back here tomorrow for my latest "Look For Less" Challenge! xo
