I know this is completely off topic, but I thought someone here might
be able to help me.  Anyway, I have a old dresser that I am revamping.
I want to get it new drawer pulls, but the old ones are recessed, so
there is a carverd out area in the drawer face.  Does anyone know
where I can find some of these recessed pulls?  What about the best
way to fill in the holes if I can't find any?  I'm going to paint the
whole thing.  Thanks a bunch for your help!!

If you have a Home Depot or Orchard Supply Hardware near you, you might
be able to find recessed pulls. If you can't find recessed pulls, you
can use wood putty to fill the depressions. It comes in many colors, and
is paintable and stainable. It's available at most hardware stores (ACE,
Home Depot, Yardbirds, Orchard Supply Hardware, etc.).

Your best bet might be to go to an antique store.  Some of the stores
who have been around a while have pretty good collections of pulls,
knobs, etc.

Here's a couple of places that might have what you're looking for:

The Renovator's Supply
P.O. Box 2515
Conway, NH 03818-2515
(800) 659-2211

Liz's Antique Hardware
453 South La Brea
Los Angeles, CA 90036
(213) 939-4403
