Recently, I decided I had had enough of the brassy doorknob situation going on in our bedroom.
After wandering around the hardware store and finding that black doorknobs are $30+ each, I knew I was just going to have to make the best of what I had.
So, drumroll please....I spray painted them!
(Pretend you are surprised.)
I spray paint everything. I would spray paint my face if it was socially acceptable. However, I had never done a doorknob before, and I was curious how they would hold up.
Well, good news!
They look great and work perfectly!
You would never know that they were sad little 1980's knobs of yesteryear.
A little spray paint was all it took to totally update these old doors!
To paint my doorknobs, I used Rust-Oleum Oil Rubbed Bronze (amazon affiliate link).
Don't let the 'bronze' name fool you. It's just black with a slight sheen to it. It's my absolute favorite oil rubbed bronze spray paint. It makes my little doorknobs look brand new!
It can also be used on cabinet hardware or hinges.
*Update: Many of you have asked how the doorknobs have held up. Almost one year later, they have held up great.
The best part is that one can of this stuff will cover a whole lot of doorknobs. I painted 7 and still had some paint leftover, so I sprayed the hardware on my dresser to match.
This room is really starting to come together...little by little. Here's a side by side of 'move-in-day' versus today.

That's all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
