Has anyone done this? Or knows how?

Has anyone oil bronzed over stainless steel cabinet knobs, and stainless steel(tin) back splashes? Or has a good link to do it right? Any info would be wonderful. It's in a kitchen so it's important for it to last the normal wear and tear. Thanks in advance

RE: Has anyone done this? Or knows how?

I have this project on my to do list. I need to change out all my relatively new brushed nickel cabinet hardware to ORB and decided to just spray paint them.

There is a specific spray paint for this at Home Depot for less than 10.00. I was a bit worried it would end up looking a bit hoaky so I sampled it on a couple of handles, and once it dries, you can't even tell it was just painted! The coloring pretty much matches my light fixtures and it looks great.

It completely chipped/wore off a stainless handle I sprayed, so you will want to test for looks and durability over time. This was on a linen closet, not something that got opened more than once a day.

Really? Bummer, well, thanks for the heads up. I may have to rethink this then. :c(

RE: Has anyone done this? Or knows how?

I did it on old steel doorknobs in my old condo. They had been painted with 17 coats of paint over the years. I stripped them, unsure what was underneath. They weren't stainless but regular steel I think. I used some sort of rustoleum primer underneath.

They held up pretty well, though I only lived there a year or so after I did it.
