You know how it is when you makeover a room, it makes something else look bad. That's how it was after I finished the master bathroom recently. A fresh coat of paint on the walls, all the wood trim and door, refinished the cabinets, and new nickel fixtures - made the original brass door hinges and doorknob look old and shabby.
Hubby told me to just go buy new hinges and knobs, but I didn't want to put nickel on just one door, and nickel wouldn't look right in the other rooms. I thought I had the solution with white ceramic door knobs; that way they would be timeless and a neutral with the different hardware colors in the different rooms. But the only place that had ones that were completely white was in the U.K. and they were just too expensive.
The hinges were the worst because they had years of sloppy painting overlapping the brass, so I just painted them with the same paint I used on the door.
Then I thought the brass coat hook on the door might be less conspicuous if it were painted white, so I spray-painted it. That turned out well, so I thought I might as well paint the door knobs.
They certainly blend now, but is it possible their lack of color makes them conspicuous? For some reason they remind me of a face with no eyebrows.
But it's done and I'll live with it awhile. If I don't like it, I'll try something else.
Until next time, may you have blessings and a full can of paint,
