    I've spray painted pulls and knobs. Use at least three thin coats and use a clear spray sealer. You'll love the look!

    It's best to hit it with a quick coat of metal primer before painting or the paint won't stay on the metal knobs

    Start by sanding them with a low grade sandpaper, lightly. Next, spray paint the knobs the color you like. If it's other than black, you might need 2 coats.

    Definitely prime them first before painting, even if you sand them!

    To paint all sides without handling I got a block of styrofoam. Removed the handles and screwed the screws back in partially. took a pencil and jabbed holes in the styrofoam. Stood up the handles and knobs in the holes. Then spray painted. Hope this helps

    Turn an egg carton upside down...put one knob on each point....spray paint the whole set at one time.
