As promised- Before and After Kitchen Hardware

I showed you last week how I spray painted all my kitchen hardware and promised some before and after photos after they were all hung back up.

My hardware once was white and brass as in these first few photos.





Now my hardware is a textured brown.

The inspiration for my hardware color came from my granite and backsplash.
What an easy and inexpensive update. The photos really don't give this change justice! I am currently attempting to darken my cabinet color. The first process and product I tried didn't work out. But there is hope! Yesterday, I found a blogger who had a similar color in her bathroom and darkened the color without much sanding. Check out her post here, Budget Bathroom Makeover.

Oh, wow! So simple to do and what a difference it makes. Love all the wood in your house. I have a lot of bare wood floors, too. Just love the warmth of it!

Isn't that the best. I used to have white pocelin knobs and I puchased new ORB ones. I loved the new look and for not much money. You were even smarter with the spray paint. I think they look great.
