Simple change: Spray painted furniture pulls and knobs

Do you have some ugly knobs or pulls that don't match the rest of your decor? Spray paint is the answer, my friends. It is such a simple solution with a HUGE impact. It can completely change the look of your furniture. I am an avid hardware spray-painter and have had really good luck with it! I haven't noticed any signs of paint rubbing off the hardware. It's almost fool proof, which is good for someone like me (haha). 

Have you seen my bathroom cabinet hardware transformation? I am still so happy with it. Since then, I have also spray painted the hardware in my kitchen -- pictures are coming soon! But here is my latest transformation: 

Before

After
I'm not sure the photos do this justice. The bronze pulls looked so out of place in my gray, white, and green room. 


Sorry, this isn't a great photo either, but here is the nightstand table that I did the same thing to. I like it! :)
What do you think? I used Krylon Metallic -- only $2.96! Heck yes! Much cheaper than changing out all of the knobs and pulls. 

Have you spray painted hardware? Have you tried other kinds of paint? I'd love to hear! :)

  8. I spray painted all of my kitchen hardware that was once bronze to silver and the other side of my dishwasher front to make it look like stainless steel. It looked wonderful but then it started to ware off within a month. I did two coats and that bronze is still peaking threw especially around the tops of my knobs. I used Valspar spray paint. Any tips on what I should do except repainting them over and over?
