Check out my revamped dresser here! It used to be my Dad’s when he was a kid, so it’s over 50 years old. I told him it was “vintage”…he didn’t like that too much :)
When I told him that I was interested in spray painting the handles gold, he suggested just restoring the brass handles to their original color. I trekked out to the hardware store and got myself a bottle of Brasso. Let me tell you…this stuff does wonders!
After taking off all of the hardware, I soaked it in the Brasso for about 20-30 minutes. I had to put these suckers outside…the fumes smelled like extremely potent hair dye!
After I buffed them & rinsed the hardware off, look at how amazing they turned out!!
I put them back on the dresser & it looks even better than if I had spray painted them gold! I am SO ecstatic about the results!
Buffing out the brass hardware was probably a little more work than spray painting would have been, but it’s nice to see the original shine & character that this “vintage” piece has! :)
