I was able to breathe new life into a red chest with just a little sandpaper and some new knobs. Quick and easy! The result is a very quirky little chest that we are using as a coffee table.
Before it was more of a solid red. I didn't take good before photos. I got going before even thinking about photos. I remembered after I had already started sanding. I hadn't done much on the drawers yet, so you can sort of get an idea of the red before look.
The black knobs wouldn't do. I found these red ones at Hobby Lobby. They weren't my first choice. They didn't have 6 of the ones I liked best. Sigh.
The photo above shows some of the old knobs and some of the new. I did replace all the knobs. What didn't I do? Take a good photo of the chest all set up in the room.
