Tuesdays Tip - More Spray Painting Projects!

I was mourning the loss of the American Traditions Oil Rubbed Bronze (ORB) Spray Paint.

I am glad to announce I found a replacement!!

Now I can finish painting the door knobs down stairs. I found these great containers at Kirkland's. Only problem I did not like the gold tops.
A little spray paint and metallic glaze... perfect!
I removed the lids and sprayed them.
It gave almost a black look so I used some metallic craft paint to antique it a bit. The lid on the left was glazed the right one was only the ORB spray paint.

That paint is great I used it last winter on the knobs on my kitchen cabinets, they were an ugly gold, I wanted the brushed nickel look to match the rest of the kichen, since I had already replaced several other things, no money in the budget for 65 knobs. I used a good primer and I have had no problems at all. Your canisters look great
