This is my Sons door just around the corner from our new hardware. Shiny brass in view of our black just drew out the attention more that we needed to change things. I again turned to my dollar a can spray paint and added three coats. It takes a while to dry before you can really grip it or you could leave finger prints in the paint and end up doing it all over again but other then that its simple. I stand the knob up in the lid of the spray paint and that way I can shot from all angles and turn it around with out touching the still tacky paint.
