Old Family Dresser Gets a Face Lift! 

I recently inherited this dresser from my grandmother's house. I think it was my dad's and I don't know too much about it except it was free and would be something passed down in the family. Possibly a dresser for the baby's room? 

The old hardware had to go, I'm all for vintage but the gold handles weren't quite calling my name. 

$40 later at Lowes and I had what looked to me like a brand new dresser! 

There's some fading of the wood where the old hardware used to be but it's not so noticeable that it's driving me crazy and something like this usually would!

In the future I'm contemplating painting it white to match the rest of the furniture in the baby's room, but for now I really like the simple face lift it got :) (See picture below)
