ORBing Our Gold Door Hardware

 Our last house was a new build, and one of the things I loved about it was the Oil Rubbed Bronze door hardware (ORB). I love our "new" house, but one of the negatives about houses that are from the year 2000 or so, is that they usually have bright gold/brass colored door handles.
I searched online, and even getting a good deal on new knobs would be over $200 just for the main floor of our house! So, I decided to try spray painting our current knobs. They are nice quality, just ugly in my opinion. ;-)
 It's turning out pretty well so far! I have also been painting some of the hinges with black oil based paint. The hinges don't look perfect, that's for sure, but they aren't gold. ha

 I'm also very proud of myself for finally figuring out how to put the deadbolt back together. haha Took me a while....
I have all the knobs in the entry and living room painted now. Only 7 doors to go! haha Not including the downstairs- we'll worry about that later. ;-)
