How to Paint Cabinet Pulls in Seconds!
I purchased and installed 14 cabinet pulls before I realized I did not like the oil rubbed bronze finish. I thought the finish would be more oil than bronze. It was not. Would anyone notice or care; not at all. Except it would bug me; like a mosquito bite. I was on a mission to figure out how to paint cabinet hardware.
Without anyone noticing they were different. Which, let's face it those odds were in my favor. I could paint the front door pumpkin orange and 1/2 my family would not notice.
I wanted black cabinet pulls; to pop against my white laundry room cabinets. Painting over a dozen cabinet pulls without incident (meaning no coverage gaps or drips) sent me on a paint fix search. And, then, with no help from Pinterest or Google I got an idea on how to paint cabinet pulls with a toothpick.
Yes a toothpick.

How to Paint Cabinet Hardware
- With an empty Amazon box, 1/2 can of black spray paint + primer and a handful of toothpicks I set up my impromptu paint station outside.
A can of black spray paint changed the look of the cabinet hardware in seconds. The freshly painted cabinet hardware gave a fresh look to a space that is all about lost socks, grass stains and dirty laundry. After all, the laundry is the most popular room in the house.
Love it! And, no one in the family ever knew of my initial disappointment in the finish. I started and finished and reinstalled the pulls in a matter of a few hours. In fact, NO ONE in the family noticed I had changed the cabinet pulls from the original pulls!
