Installing new hardware on a piece of furniture can change the entire appearance.  It can give it a fresh new look with little cost.


We recently changed the hardware on my desk.  (You remember this, right… my Dresser to Desk Transformation?)

And while changing the hardware, My Better Half was kind enough to let me video how he does it so perfectly.  So here are two short videos on how to change and install hardware, simply and perfectly everytime.

Now, this is a close up of the jig he used.

We bought this one at a big box hardware store for around $3.  It is one of his best purchases for saving time and doing the job right the first time.

So, if you’re looking to spruce up a piece of old furniture, changing up the hardware is a great, simple, low cost way to do it!
