Changing the color of your hardware or screws has never been easier! This simple tutorial shows how to paint screws and hardware without any drip marks!
My husband and I were recently hanging some brackets in our master closet to add some shelving. All of the brackets and screws we used were oil rubbed bronze…except two small brackets and screws that we needed to hold up a baseball hat shelf. They were silver and could not be purchased in any other color.
So I took the brackets and screws and spray painted them in oil rubbed bronze. My method to spraying the screws gained me big props from my hubby! He was really impressed with how I set them up!
While it was a no brainer to me, I figured I would share my little tip with you all! Because I’m sure someone else out there is in the same predicament that we were in!
