When I remodeled to sell our 100+ year old home, I had to do something to the 70's remodeled brass switch plates and doorknobs that had tarnished badly. Since our budget was strained with the recarpeting, new HVAC system, repainting, I had to look for an affordable alternative. It took a few coats of antique bronze finish spray paint, topped with a few coats of satin finish Lacquer left over from my photography career, and every doorknob, strike plate, floor register and switch plate had a fabulous period style look to it. It took several weeks to do, but it made the house!
