Have you found the perfect piece of furniture to paint and bring back to life? Is everything perfect about the piece except the old tarnished hardware? Or maybe there are a few original hardware pieces missing? Don’t worry that the hardware is less than perfect, I have a fix for that without spending money on new hardware, which can get pricey. I am all about saving you money and sharing all the different ways to save you money. Today we are going to talk about How to Paint Furniture or Cabinet Hardware.
If you are lucky and find old furniture pieces with their original hardware, they are always tarnished and outdated. You can save money by using the original hardware and just painting them. Also if you have a few of the original pieces missing you can just purchase a few new ones to replace the missing ones and paint the new ones in the same method as the original ones and have them match. I have created an online workshop to show you how to paint your furniture hardware, with 4 different techniques.
In this workshop, you will learn 4 different techniques to finish your furniture or cabinet hardware. The 4 finishes are Classic Metallic, Chalk Painted with glaze and wax, Chippy distressed, and Rub N Buff. You will learn the process involved for each finish as well as the best products to use for that finish. You will learn all the information needed to take on your next furniture hardware makeover. If you are a hands-on learner, like me, this course is perfect for you. The best part about my workshops, they are self-paced, in your own home, at a time that is convenient for you and your workshop is a lifetime. You can rewind as much as you want and watch again and again or watch it a year after year for refresher tips.
The first method is a brushed metallic. You will learn what products to use to create this classic metallic look. This brushed metallic look comes out looking like the finish is original from the manufacturer, beautiful and classic looking.
The second method is using chalk paint, with wax or glaze. You will learn how to paint hardware with chalk paints and to seal with wax or glaze to create the perfect aged, antiqued look.
The third method is Chippy Distressed – You will learn what products to use to create the best chippy distressed hardware and how to apply them. The chippy distressed method is great for the popular farmhouse finishes.
The final method is how to use Rub-n-Buff on your hardware. I show you 2 different techniques on how to apply Rub-n-Buff to your hardware pieces.
