It never ceases to amaze us how some wood filler, paint, new hardware and switching the drawer order around can transform a plain-Jane piece of furniture into something pretty snazzy.
We think labeling the drawers is a handy touch too. If you are about to embark on a project of this sort for the very first time, then hopping over to Bower Power is a great place start; they have loads of photos including each step of their process. For a child's room you might switch up the hardware for something more playful.
