Spray paint is a girls best friend when it comes to updating or giving something a new look.？ My new love is Rust-Oleum Metallic spray paint. And no， I am not being paid to show you…；…；..although I should.？ ？？
My home is about 13 yrs old.？ My home had a lot of that “；Carpenter’；s Brass“；， as Rhoda calls it.？ I hate brass.？ HATE! But I also don’；t feel like spending my money replacing perfectly good door handles and hardware.？ So I marched myself down to my local hardware store and bought some Metallic Paint.？ I knew it would work since we spray painted our front door hardware a few years ago and it is just now needing a touch up.family pillow cover
I am really pleased with the end result.？ Howeverpersonalized gifts for girlfriend， I should have given my husband more direction.
He wasn’；t so excited to be painting door handles and would have lived another 20 years or more not giving a second thought to the ugly brass ones.
He took them all off while I was away teaching， laid them down on a drop cloth outside， sanded them a little and sprayed them…；…；…；.then walked away to mow the yard.？ Which may have been fine had it not started to sprinkle.？ Water on wet spray paint makes it look a little more rustic with pits and bubbles than I was wanting.？ And he realized that it was kind of hard to get an even coat when they were laying on their sides.？
So I thought we needed something like a stand you use when making cake pops.？ We used an old box， punched small holes to hold the knobs and we were in business again. (after sanding a few of the bubbled ones off)？ See how nice they look？？ And that’；s the EXACT paint I used.
Here they are on my office doors. So much better， don’；t you think？？ And it only cost me the can of spray paint…；…；about $8.00 and maybe a cranky husband for a few moments.？？ Totally worth it!
Warning： You will suddenly notice how filthy your doors are and proclaim to be the worst house keeper in the world.？ Thank goodness for the magic eraser.
？Edited： I have since chatted with a few people who it didn’；t work so well for. Mine are still holding up great as of today (03/07/2014) as well as our front door hardware outside is going on about 7 or 8 years. We did sand a bit and made sure to use a paint suggest for metal. I used the exact paint in the above photograph. Good luck!？
