  • We priced out how much it would cost to purchase all new knobs and hinges for the doors, and it would have been way out of our price range
  • Now that the house is put back together, I love the color of the oil rubbed bronze fixtures and the way they contrast with the white doors and trim
  • I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for an inexpensive alternative to purchasing all new hardware for their home

      We recently did some updating to the interior of our home, including painting, new curtains, new fixtures, etc. One of the things we did was to have all out trim and doors painted white, The doors turned out really well, but the door knobs were still outdated with a shiny brass finish. We priced out how much it would cost to purchase all new knobs and hinges for the doors, and it would have been way out of our price range. Then a friend told us that she has purchased a can of Rust-Oleum metallic spray paint and painted

      her fixtures inside the home rather than replacing them.

      We decided to give this method a try, and we went to the local hardware store and purchased a can of the metallic spray paint in “oil rubbed bronze”. The clerk at the store instructed us to clean the knobs first, then sand them so there was no shine left, and then spray primer, then the paint. Although this sounded time-consuming, it was a better alternative than paying hundreds of dollars for new door knobs, so we decided to just buy one can to try out and see if we liked the results.

      The doors had already been removed for painting, so we had all the hinges and knobs in a bowl. We took them out to the garage and one by one we washed them, sanded them, and laid them out on a sheet of newspaper. Then we applied a spray primer in a light coat. After that was dry, we sprayed the metallic paint. I loved the color immediately. It was oil-rubbed bronze, which is a very dark color with tiny light-reflecting flecks in it. We let it dry and then applied a second coat. After the second ...

      coat, the color was even richer.

      We liked the looks of the paint so much that we went back to the hardware store and purchased three more can of it. We ended up using the paint on all our fixtures, knobs, handles, towel racks, everything we could find to paint. Now that the house is put back together, I love the color of the oil rubbed bronze fixtures and the way they contrast with the white doors and trim.

      I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for an inexpensive alternative to purchasing all new hardware for their home.

      This paint gave everything an updated look, and it only cost about $7 per can. The thing to remember is that the process is a bit time consuming by the time you remove, wash, sand and then apply the primer and paint. But, if you have patience, the product is great and you will be happy with the results. The paint comes in a variety of colors and finishes to fit any decor. Time will tell how well it holds up to wear and tear, but for us it’s been good so far and it looks beautiful with the rest of our decor.
