Update Furniture With New Hardware

If you want to update a piece of furniture without refinishing or repainting, then look at this quick solution. See how I gave the entryway table a fresh new look by replacing the drawer pulls. It only takes a few minutes to update furniture with new hardware.

Hardware, just like jewelry can make an outfit. It’s an old analogy but still holds true. Dress up a piece of furniture or give it a completely new personality by changing out pulls or knobs.

Update Hardware

The bronze drawer pulls have now been replaced with pewter loop pulls. They have a smaller profile, and a rustic feel that I like better for the entryway table. I’m going for a more casual look which I think these work great as a simple update.

Love the dark woods with rustic hardware.


You don’t have to spend very much on hardware. The new pulls were less expensive than the ones I replaced, and it only took a few minutes to remove the old ones to install the new.

Did you notice that I have also updated the entryway with a fun piece of artwork? The vintage looking school bird chart adds to the casual feel of the entry. I was looking for a scientific or botanical chart when I stumbled over the birds and had to have it. I have a link source at the end of the post for it and other charts.

If the hardware you’re replacing is still in good shape you might consider using it on another piece of furniture or on cabinets in another room. Hardware can also be spray painted if the color isn’t right for the project you have in mind.

    What a great and simple solution to update a nice piece of furniture. Though it did look pretty good before, I do think it looks more updated with the new pulls.

    I absolutely agree Michelle, the hardware can make all the difference on the furniture. I am always looking out for new hardware to add to my furniture as an easy way to upcycle them.

    Oooh! I love the new hardware you’ve put on your hall table, Michelle! Great idea to just switch that out. I think so many people feel they have to get rid of a piece of furniture if something doesn’t work and this is a great way to refresh without tossing it to the curb. <3 Happily pinning to my Decorating board for you and our readers. Thanks!
