Are the door/drawer fronts of the vanity solid wood? We changed out the hardware in our kitchen and used a white wood filler, sanded and then painted our cabinets. Depending on the finish of your vanity, could you wood fill and touch up/repaint or is it more of a thermofoil type finish?

Based on the product we used, I think it would be obvious. 🙁 It dried with a really dull finish and the laminate/thermofoil (at least on our vanity) has a bit more of a matte sheen to it. It would need to be painted over if you didn’t want to notice it.

You could likely fill the hole with wood filler then get a tiny bottle of paint at the craft store that matches your cabinet color. Just dab it on the filled area with a tiny brush.

wont the new drawer pull cover it up?  It seems it would show if there was no pull, but the pull will be over the patch job?

You may also have to drill two new holes. If there is just one knob the hole is usually centered. You will need to center the handle in the middle of the drawer so the holes will be a couple of inches either side of the center.

There is another way to fill the holes. Drill them to be 1/4″ in size. Fill the hole with a piece of 1/4″ dowel covered with glue. Let that dry. Top up with putty, sand and paint.

I would just try to find drawer pulls with one hole. I think it won’t patch well.
