Has anyone ever tried to change the finish on their current doorknobs, hinges, etc.? I have a mixed bag of hardware and would like to change the finish to an oiled bronze look. Almost all of my hinges are coated with layers of paint. I tried removing the old paint and re-painting the door hinges to a rust color (rustoleum paint) but am not sure it will last and also would like a more mottled (?) affect. The cost of new hardware would be high for over 20 doors. Thank you for your help!
