So I decided to be doctor for an afternoon and perform a facelift :).
My goal was to transform the sliding glass door hardware from a worn look to an Oil Rubbed Bronze style that would match our interior door handles & hinges.
The whole point of this project was to get the sliding glass door hardware to match our interior door hardware, which is oil rubbed bronze.
Rust-Oleum makes pretty much any paint color you can imagine, including oil rubbed bronze, in a spray can.20-30 minutes after applying the primer I sprayed the handles and screws with the oil rubbed bronze topcoat (even the can looks cool, a true indicator your paint job will be awesome, :))Always apply multiple coats versus 1 heavy coat of paint.
This allows you to paint the handles without them sticking to any surface. Lightly coat the sliding glass door hardware with the primer . Be especially light with the spray primer where the door locking mechanism and keyhole are located.
Hold the spray paint can 10-16 inches above the hardware and make smooth horizontal passes. These are the only moving parts on the handle and therefore don’t respond well to a thick coat of primer or paint.
