Everything else is darker and the light wood tone just wasn't working for me...seemed like the perfect occasion to try out some oil-rubbed bronze spray paint. I've heard lots of good things about ORB so I was pretty excited to give it a try. I chose the Rust-oleum Universal Paint & Primer in One.
I got everything setup in the garage to start spraying. I had to rig the post that the towels go on from the ceiling. I couldn't figure out how to get the spray paint on all the surfaces at the same time other than hanging it. I was pretty impressed with my zip-tie skills. Haha! It worked like a charm though; I was able to get nice even coats on all sides and leave it hanging to dry.
Here's the finished product back in the kitchen. Great improvement I think! It's obviously not the most exciting thing in the world...since it holds paper towels but it looks a lot better!
I do really love the finish though. It's amazing how bronze it actually looks since it's just a spray paint. I sort of want to spray everything I see with it. Anyone else been on an ORB kick lately? If you have the urge I'd totally recommend this paint. Let me here about your projects in the comments.
