Remove Old Hardware

Remove the existing hardware from each drawer with a screwdriver or drill. Tip: Keep the original hardware to preserve the dresser's authenticity when passing it down or selling it in the future.

Install New Knobs

Install knobs or pulls on each drawer using a screwdriver or drill, and securely fasten the hardware in place with washers and nuts. Tip: New hardware styles often come with attached nuts. To ensure proper installation, use needle-nose pliers to fasten the nuts securely to the bolts.
