Anyone painted a brass towel bars?
I have 3 towel bars, a TP holder, and light fixture that are chrome with brass ends. They weren't cheap but the brass part hasn't held up well, maybe because they are in a bathroom & we have high humidity in summer. Anyway, the brass parts have tarnished and look awful, especially on the towel bars & TP holder.
I was thinking of painting the brass parts with a brushed nickel finish. I've read a few websites about painting brass, and most say brass isn't a good base for painting.
Mine is probably thin brass plating which probably had a clear coat (although by the amount of tarnish from the beginning, I wouldn't swear to that), so I think it might work.
I was wondering if anyone else had tried it and how it looked & held up.
