Metallic finish for door hardware?
We recently stripped the paint off our door hardware in our master bedroom and main bath. We have a 1915 Craftman house.
It looks like they were originally nickel plated brass or chrome plated. Based on my research, it is more likely they were nickel since chrome wasn't popular until the 30's. The bath was remodeled and has chrome faucets and we spray painted the heat register cover with a satin nickel color after sand blasting it. I tried brass polish but it is taking the plate off, so I think we need to paint all of them.
What color would you do: chrome, satin/brushed nickel, or polished nickel?
