Brassy to Classy...


(Before)


(Before)


Our brass door knobs have always bugged me. I've been wanting to switch them out for the anodized version for a while. I decided to go for it.

I went to HD to purchase the new knobs and they were $15 a set.


Ouch.

I have 18 doors.

So, I took a detour down the paint isle. I picked up a can of Rustoleum spray paint in oil rubbed bronze and a can of Rustoleum metal primer (for adhesion).

I am so happy with the results. The entire project cost $12 for the 2 cans of paint and took about an hour to complete, plus dry time.

You honestly can not tell the difference between the spray painted knobs and the real ones.
