My wife has always hated my old dresser. The drawers are always over stuffed and some are hard to slide open, in addition to looking like cheap plastic-covered particle board. A couple of weeks ago I finally found the "to-it" to get around to replacing it.
The new one is better looking plastic covered particle board... courtesy of IKEA. However, the drawers are much bigger, it has metal and bearing drawer slides, and just looks better. But I'm not a fan of the IKEA Scandinavian 'modern' look so I went to the hardware store and bought a set of knobs for it. They certainly change the appearance of it, a softer, more traditional look I think.
