Covering drawer pull holes the impatient way.

I wouldn't say I'm a lazy person. I enjoy a challenge. But one things for sure, if that challenge involves waiting for anything for any length of time- I'm out. That's why I took up watercolor painting instead oil painting- shorter dry time. Patience is not one of my best qualities and I'm okay with that. I've come to a point now where I can wait for what's really important. Waiting for wood putty to dry is not one of them. This is the segue into my point for today's post.

You know when you try to re-do a dresser and the holes for the drawer pulls are way too far apart? I hate that! That means I have to get out the old wood putty and squish it into the freakin' holes. Allow that to dry, sand and then paint over. Too much waiting!! Hate it!!!

So from the mind of one so impatient, I came up with a ten minute solution. And it goes a little like this:

I painted this dresser a few months ago, but didn't find time to replace the pulls.
Solution: Decorative cover to hide the holes

Supply List:
Perforated Aluminum Sheet (The style I used was Union Jack)
Decorative paper
A new Drawer Pull

tools required:
Tin snips
screw driver

The original pulls were much smaller than the new ones, so some drilling was required.

My solution to putty, sanding and painting is to cover it with perforated aluminum. Say what? You heard right. This stuff is the shiz. I happened to have this laying around from when we used it to create a cover to hide our old ugly radiator. It's just a thin sheet of aluminum with a nice pattern cut out into it.
I used tin snips to very easily to cut the aluminum to size.  Then to keep all the drawers uniform, I measure 1.5 inches from the top of the drawer.
 Remembering where the holes to my pull lined up with the aluminum sheet, I marked where the holes should be drilled.
Drilled the holes.
Then I placed my piece of decorative paper, cut to the same size as the aluminum sheet, over top of the holes and poked through them with a pencil.
 Pushing the screws through the back, I then put the paper, aluminum and then the drawer pull in place. Secured from the back with the screw driver.
No waiting, just doing.


  1. Wow, such an interesting effect at the end! You're super creative!

  2. Looks very nice, Please notice that you did not measure 1.5 inches. You did 1.25. Must have worked anyway.
    God bless.

  3. I drop a comment each time I especially enjoy a post on a website or
    I have something to contribute to the discussion. Usually it's a result of the fire communicated in the post I read. And on this post "Covering drawer pull holes the impatient way.". I was actually moved enough to drop a comment ;-) I actually do have some questions for you if it's allright.
    Is it simply me or does it look like some of these comments come across like they are written by brain dead individuals?
    :-P And, if you are writing on other places,
    I'd like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list the complete urls of your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
