I have tried it, and its not working. I am keeping the originals in place. Thanks for all the advice on this piece. We took a house vote, moved the pieces around to try something different, and it just wasn't working. Below are photos of me placing a few here and there just to see what it would look like...You will see for yourself!
Every redone piece does not call for new hardware I see. They just needed to be updated with the dresser. I love it as is.
