a quick makeover

I've been wanting to replace the doorknobs in our home since before we moved in. I've been gradually changing out anything brass that was in the house when we moved in and all that's left are these doorknobs and some faucets.

After figuring out how many knobs we have and the cost to replace each of them I just couldn't justify spending a few hundred dollars to replace them. So they have sat there in all their golden glory....until yesterday.

I spray painted them! I was a little skeptical to say the least, but I've sprayed plenty of metal things in the past so why not! I used Rustoleum's "Dark Bronze" and could not be happier with the results. Here's what they looked like before...

And the lovely after... What a wonderful change for just a few dollars!
