 here is a dress I got for $10 at a yard sale.

Still need to find 6 new pulls for the top, one was missing.

It's for my daughter Margaret's room.

 

Update: Here is what we ended up doing with the top knobs. We found these pink ceramic ones at hobby lobby. perfect for little girl's room. We left the original pulls on the bottom, we like the old/vintage look of them.

 Great Job!  It's amazing what a fresh coat of paint, and a little tender loving care will do!

Very pretty! Since it's for your daughter, would you consider putting on glass knobs to replace the others? Or do you want to keep all the hardware the same?

 Thank you! I love the look of glass knobs. The only problem is the pulls on the bottom drawers have two holes...and it's been impossible finding any other pulls that line up. I didn't really feel like going to all the trouble of filling the holes...I just wanted it in her room!! haha

Soo...I'm def. going to keep the ones on the bottom. As for the top 6 knobs---as long as they go well with the bottom I don't care what they are (metal, glass, etc.)

 This is just great!! I love white furniture..have you thought of using wood filler for the extra holes and going with the glass knobs? That might be an option it you really want to use them.
