Changing the Finish on Hardware

What happens when you have the right style, the right price, the availability, but the wrong finish?  You change it. It's so simple, I just had to share.

The actual hardware I used is from Home Depot, you can find it here
Let's get started by sanding the smooth finish so it's a little rough.  Here is the sanding tool I used.

Next up, lay your hardware down on piece of clean cardboard.  This is actually an important step, a clean surface is key.   As is a can of  Rustoleum  spray paint.  It's my favorite brand, it works the best and I can always find just the right color.  I was a little nervous about this color, but there was no need to be.

Look at how fantastic it turned out!  Even better in person and soon I will show you the finished look all pulled together.
