brass table base-how to paint

Posted by cjays (My Page) on

I've got old glass top coffe tables with polished brass bases (getting pretty pitted).

What type of paint can I use to give them a bronze look? What is the best way to apply? Is spray better?

Paint store suggested Krylon spray but wasn't sure if it would look just like spray paint on an old table-if you know what I mean.
Thanks for any ideas.

rustoleum or krylon would be fine for a spray, but just make sure you do some prep of cleaning and some sanding rid of a lacquer finish. Dust and clean off all sanding debris.

After cleaning, spray on primer. Rustoleum makes quite a few finishes you can use. I have the oil-bronzed one.
