Hey, I actually remembered to get photos for a tutorial!! Wahoo, miracles happen!
So here is a little tutorial for upcycling your exisiting drawer pulls with spray paint. It's pretty durable and a fun way to update old, dated drawer pulls.
And BTW--I just realized I used all Krylon products for this tutorial--just by chance, I'm not being paid or anything, and i I do use lots of different sprays. I guess this just happens to be what I had around at the moment!
Lay out your drawer pulls upside down, or as close as you can get. Always start your knobs upside down.
Ok, anyone see the headache about to happen in this photo??
I use a metal primer for metal pulls. If they were wood I would use odorless, oil based Kilz spray.
Once the bottom is sprayed and dry, flip them over to do the top.
Ok, top done!
Remember, primer is just a sticking coat, not a coverage coat, so it's ok if it doesn't seem solid.
Now on to the pretty coat. I like Krylon's Oil Rubbed Bronze spray because it's more subtle than other bronzed black sprays, but you can use whatever color you like.
Again--flip your knobs over to do the bottoms first so you don't miss any spots or ding up the pretty side by doing it first and then having to flip it over. Your goal is to not have to touch the knobs at all once you spray them do you don't chance putting dings or fingerprints on them.
And spray with 2 coats of spray paint. Once they're dry, flip and do the tops.
oooh, close up.
