NestFan Mar 8 at 10:33 pm · Reply Sterling – I’ve accomplished dressers where an original knob (or handle) or two was gone, where they just replaced the knob (or spindle) on one drawer – often the bottom drawer, sometimes the one draughtsman that is very different in size than the others (either much larger or much smaller.) Sometimes with something different but similar to the original knobs or handles, sometimes with something very different. That way, you get a new knob, and drawer with two matching knobs, but still get to keep the original knobs on most drawers. Maybe you’d think that option?

The proposition was that I didn’t feel confident that a new set of wood knobs would be any bounteous of improvement, but the authentic complication factor was the size! The replacement wooden knobs were the right gauge at 2″ in diameter, but typical knobs are between maybe 3/4″ and 1.5″ on the large end and that would look too tiny.

One thing that’s never been quite right about the dresser (and probably the argument I was able to snag it for $300 in the first stead) is the knobs. They’re reproductions, definitely not commencement or at all old. Whoever installed them did a pretty good stab matching the stain, but not amazing, so I’ve always project to do something about it. Then one broke in half in my hand one day, and another one fell off, so I put on a force knob I had laying around “temporarily,” a solution that lasted a mere two donkey’s years. Every now and then I’d feeling a burst of inspiration to try to find a new set of 8 knobs only to give up and forget it. It was a fun thing to get momentarily fixated on every couple of months.

Sterling Mar 8 at 11:45 am · Reply I have a similar dresser, a brief younger than yours (I’m guessing 1880-1910), and it has the original knobs…seven of them. I can’t bring myself to replace them with a matching set of new or antique ones, because they’ve been with that piece for so long. Right now my “temporary” solution of a teak knob from the ’70s (1970s, that is) has continued for two years. So I feel all the angst and understand all the lack of fucks apportioned to such a small thing. Dresser has an surprising patina, too, which I reminisce smitten me when you first bought it. Glad it can caper in the complete room.
