Putting lipstick on a pig

Not exactly lipstick on not exactly a pig, but this dresser that serves as the TV console is not my ideal piece of furniture.

It is a hand-me-down from my grandfather who knew enough to keep it hidden in a walk-in closet, although, these photos make it look worse than it really is. It is highly functional for us so it stays for the moment.
Last week I found these little brass ring pulls online and thought they might help that dowdy dresser.

It wasn't quite the impact I was going for but I think it is an improvement over the wooden knobs.

This $30 update made a much better "pig".
Have you ever updated with new hardware? Was it a let down or really fabulous?
