TIP: Use Rustoleum to make outdoor door hardware new!
This was one of the most simple things I’ve done! We hated our brass hardware on our front door. We wanted to simply paint it black – and did! Just take it apart, lay it on a piece of cardboard, and spray paint. Let it dry for about an hour (I always use a fan to help speed up the process). Then spray it again, wait another hour and re-install the hardware. Done, and your door looks as good as new!
