Updating handles

I am trying to add new handles to an old dresser, but the holes do not line up for the new hardware - space bewteen holes is about 1/4" too small. What's the best way to make new handles work?

Re: Updating handles

A couple things. You may be able to redrill the holes and still have the new handle cover the old. If not, you can put a decorative escutcheon or a brass or stainless steel washer under the handle to cover the holes. Instead of a handle, use knobs.
