Replating kitchen cabinet hinges?
I was just given a quote to replate my current brass hinges to a satin nickel... After sticker shock I negotiated down to $300 for 28 hinges as opposed to the $500 price I was initially quoted.. Does anyone know if I can beat the $10/hinge price?
I don't want to swap out hinges due to the work of drilling and filling holes, etc, but mostly that I've read it can be near impossible to get the doors to line up well again with new hardware. I'm thinking I should also go with a less invasive option since they will be newly gel stained... Our hinges are actually in great shape too so I'd rather swallow the replating price.
I had initally considered spray painting, but peeling paint in the kitchen doesn't sound appealing...
