The original plan was to purchase new, more modern hardware for the cabinets.
The existing cabinet handles are a dull brass, but they seem to be good quality and the sticker said they were made in India (not sure if that’s a good/bad thing). The dull brass is better than shiny brass, but it is still a little too 1986-Southern Living for me.
I didn’t mind the shape, so I decided to try my hand at spray painting them. After all, if they turned out gross, my only loss would be a can of spray paint and some of my precious time.
I started by sanding the handles with 200 grit sandpaper. Then I used a damp cloth to wipe off the dust.
What do you think? Have you had any luck or failure in spray painting hardware or metal?
