Need your opinions PLEASE!!!

I need some advice... as my mind is not sure what to do!!
The advice I am asking for is way of your opinions of what would
look better?? I am trying to paint
some of my furniture to look more primitive...
I like the black color... but should I use my
sandpaper and rough it up??
Sand off the edges?? Beat it up???
(It is already slightly well used!!!)
This is my dresser and shelves turned
hutch... I do like it... just didn't like it in
white! What would you do??? HELP???

The drawers are on the floor getting painted
also... All of your help on this would be greatly appreciated!!!!

My second thought is should I paint the drawer pulls???
I do like them... not sure why... but I do.
They are actually kind of a black
color... not so bright as the pic would
make it seem. But should I brighten
them with a coat of paint? Should I
darken them??? What exactly???

I would really appreciate all the
advice any and all of you offer!!!

I hope you all feel free to offer your advice!! I would love to hear
from everyone!!! Thank you all for your help in advance! I can't
say enough how kind everyone in blogsville has been to me!! I
feel like we are some of the very best friends!! Thank you!!!! :D

As for Sunday... we, (my nephew, Samantha, hubby, and myself)
did get Samantha's stuff moved from the third floor of her
apartment... to the trailer ( yes, we did wash it out!!! ;-) used
most days for the cattle lol) back to New Strawn... and into the
storage unit!!! Everyone is kind sore today... and my nephew
(who is only 10) did tell us yesterday... that he "would never
volunteer to help someone move again!! How can one person
have sooooooo much stuff???!!!!!" Poor fellow. I had to give
him a really big hug!! How soon would he learn how much
stuff he will accumulate in his lifetime!!! :D

I hope everyone is having a great Monday!!! I know I am. It has
been quite productive!! And hope that it will continue to be so!!

Well all I need to close get some more stuff done!!
(Laundry for one!!)
Oh I am going to make myself a new sign too, it will be placed in my laundry room. "Laundry today.... Naked tomorrow!!" I think that one is so fitting!! Hope you all have a great day!!

Thank you for stopping by for another visit. I will be looking forward to visiting you all later this evening. :D

Also don't forget to SMILE...
You will get on in return!!!
Remember to Live well, Laugh often,
and to LOVE much!!

Hey Debi!
I think you need to sand the edges a little if you want it to really look old. I'm not much help when it comes to the pulls...I don't know what to suggest on that. You're like me, girl, I'm painting everything black I can. LOVE the primitive look now.

i say leave it as is. cause if its white underneath and you sand it then the white will show through...... if its wood underneath then sand.... i hope that made sense. :)
i like the handles. i think i would darken them.

Simple~needs is so right. If you can only sand down to the white, that looks pretty bad. Even if you sand down to wood, some of the white shows around the edges. Not a good look. It's lookin' good just like it is. Me, I wouldn't paint the knobs.

I agree with Cher. I would leave it black and not paint the knobs. Hope this helps. I like what you have done so far!
