I liked the shape, but the brass finish wasn’t what I was going for and was kinda beat up.
Of course, I solved this problem with spray paint :)
I just wanted to share a quick little trick I discovered (everyone probably does this, but it just came to me!). It’ll help you get your hardware spray painted quickly and evenly.
The trick is cardboard.
If you use the screws to poke holes in the sturdy cardboard, then screw on the hardware, it’ll stand up perfectly so you’re able to spray paint the whole thing at once.
I placed the cardboard on a crate so it didn’t matter that the screws were poking out.
Just make sure your neighbors aren’t having a little party downwind of your spray paint. Sometimes I am so unaware of my surroundings! Luckily after one spray I noticed them and hid behind the car. And as far as I can tell the car is not brushed nickel!
What tricks do you have up your sleeve to paint oddly shaped items?
