The center of the drawer needed something to fill in the space. I adored the shape of the hardware but had nothing on hand that was similar to the style. So first,  I used chalk to generalize the shape, then painted around the design. The chalk is very forgiving and can easily be wiped off if there is a mistake.  
The chalk also worked perfect as a guide for the drill hole. Just cover the back of the knob with chalk and eye the placement. It will transfer your drill hole.

This poor lonely dresser was missing drawers, and the particle board surround was warped and beyond repair. (A free find!) I absolutely adored the hardware on it and was pleasantly  surprised to find the drawer fronts made of wood. This project definitely opened my eyes towards more particle board pieces! I've been a bit of a snob to them. Lol Make sure and check them, sometimes they'll have wonderful wood pieces that can be reused for other bits, and the prices are drastically lower then full wood pieces!
