This project was fun and saved a TON of money. We are remodeling our house and I really liked our hardware in the bathroom, except that it was from 1986! I bought some metal primer and brushed nickel spray paint.
I bought the supplies at Lowes. First, I sanded the handles with 220 fine sand paper. Then I added a coat of primer. Once that dried, I used 2-3 coats of the brushed silver spray paint. Finally, when that dried, I used a clear coat finish to protect it. I'm happy I reused what I had for the bathrooms. I love the way it came out :)
The goal is to have the tub under the bed store memories like special tshirts and things that are too big for the binder. The picture below is from my son...it is way too cute to not save, and it can't fit in the binder.
