Moving along in the condo, I wanted to replace all the hardware with something more modern. I wanted to do it within a very low budget and wanted something that lasts.
I removed all knobs and pieces myself and spray painted them with
Rust-Oleum Hammered Metal Finish Spray, Dark Bronze
Almost 8 months later and they are holding well. No scratching at all.
The painting process can be a little tricky not to smudge it and to fully let it dry before adding another layer on. This was so much cheaper then buying all new through the house and they look just as good as store bought. Huge money saver.
