Even though both pieces were in good condition and were reasonably priced, they needed a big ol’ overhaul before they would work well in our house!

I selected some smaller handles for the Little Sister because two handles were going on each drawer.

Big Beauty got bigger handles for the larger drawers and small square nobs for the smaller middle drawers.

Here are the products I used on both the Little Sister and Big Beauty…
