Anyhow my "DUH!" moment happened when I painted our dressers. Originally they were stained but with the wood floor it clashed in color. Besides I painted the walls a Tiffany blue and the stained oak color just didn't do it for me. So I thought I would paint them black, oh my gosh they look fabulous. The problem was with the hardware, they had black hardware on them. So I thought I would go buy more modern hardware, in a stainless or those really cute glass knobs. Problem being that they cost a fortune and I'm just too cheap to spend that much on new knobs. Sooooo it dawned on me one day, HELLO spray paint them! After all I liked the shape of the old hardware so why not?
This was them before, perfecty fine hardware just not on a black dresser.
First I put on a coat of Rust-Oleum Hammered spray paint in a stainless/silver color.
Then I applied an acrylic black, and rubbed it off before it dried so it was just left in the creveses. Then a top coat of clear sealer. Voila!!
Praise God for YOU!!!
