Refinishing door hardware

Knocker On The White Door

When renovating an old home there it seems like there is a fine line between updating elements of the home and ruining the character.  When walking through my house it it is almost a fun game to play, which one doesn’t belong here.  There are wonderful old, ornate door handles and fixtures in almost every room, and then all the sudden you see a cheap brass handle, that was obviously part of some renovation project.  I just learned about oil-rubbed bronzing that could work to unify the look for all the fixtures.  Basically, you spray paint the fixtures a matte black color.   This ORB technique will work to mute the new hardware in the house, but I am very apprehensive to try it on the original pieces.  I’m not sure if we will use it in our home, but I think it is a good, easy and budget friendly renovation project.
