I needed a fix for my kitchen cabinets.
My old brass pulls were worn and shabby. I had also purchased a new faucet that was “oil rubbed bronze” and now clashed with my old drawer pulls.
What’s a DIY’er to do?
Well, for a cheap DIY’er…I wasn’t shelling out almost $5.00 a “pull” for 46 cabinets.
So……less than one can of spray paint solved my problem.
Here was my dilemma……
New kitchen faucet…loved it…but it wasn’t working with my old, worn brass pulls.
And remember….I’m a brass lover.
No excuses…I just love brass.
But these were worn out….worn off….and ugly.
No excuses there either. We LIVE in our house.
But I loved my new faucet and when I couldn’t find a white replacement when ours broke…I was in a dilemma.
Such a pretty faucet but the bronze and brass were not working!
Spray paint to the rescue!
I took my old pulls off….taped them up, making sure to tuck tape in and around the “porcelain” portion of the drawer pulls. This would help keep any spray paint on the porcelain portion of the drawer pull to a minimum.
Please hold your hand like an alien claw to do this process.
40 more to go!!!!
It truly didn’t take that long…… ; )
I used three coats. This was a quick drying spray paint, which made the painting go super fast. Plus this new can makes application super easy as you can hold it any, which way and it goes on even.
By the time I got the steam off my lens, because it was 400 degrees outside it was too late to see that I had not focused directly on the can.
Sorry about that. I was sweating people.
It is Rustoleum’s Oil Rubbed Bronze UNIVERSAL spray paint.
And all of my pulls took less than ONE can.
To take my kitchen….from brass…..
To the oil rubbed bronze…..
May I just share that I have the worst kitchen in the world to take indoor pics of…..The combination of the yellow pine, green walls and bright ONE window…..
Well….just bear with me and I hope you can still see what a fun transformation you can have for so little cash!
Like the oil rubbed bronze?
Have some drawer pulls that could use a makeover?
These have not scratched and seem super sturdy. I even distressed the edges a bit to let the metallic peep through….just like my faucet.
I love it.
What do you think?
Have some drawer pulls that need an update?
I would love to know!
