Spray Painting Closet Hardware

One of the maybe least-noticeable changes about our closets was the hardware that holds the closet rods in place.  We just happened to have some metal spray paint we hadn't used, so we gave it a go on this stuff. 

A few lessons learned:
  • the metal spray paint coats and stays on VERY well, hasn't scratched up a bit in installation
  • there is no need to spray anything but the very tips of the screws...getting paint on the threads makes them a little more difficult to screw back in


  1. Great tip! Thanks for stopping by Posed Perfection today and for the follow. Hope you have a great week!

  2. Have you tried doing this with door knobs? I'd love to cheaply replace my brass door knobs, but it seems like painting them would make it so they wouldn't turn. Looks good!

    1. No, I haven't done knobs. My husband read up on it and found that the people who had tried it had a few problems. Maybe that was one of them. I'm really surprised how well it adhered and isn't scratching off though. That's what I thought would happen.


Thanks for your comments~!
