How I love the new look I gave to my kitchen hardware! Sorry, but I forgot to take a "before" shot in my kitchen. So the picture below shows my laundry room counter, with the pulls before I painted them.
Don't you love the shiny brass!
I removed all pulls and hinges in my kitchen. Then using Rustoleum Primer (heavy duty) and Rustoleum Metallic Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint, I went to town. They look great, and I saved a lot of money. My concern is with the hinges. When I opened them, the paint scraped off a 1/4" section. So...black Sharpie to the rescue. We'll see how they hold up. I might have to go buy new hinges.
This was a 16-hour project. I am pleased with the results, though.
