A couple of weekends ago, I tackled a few small updates to our front entry area. The hardware around the door had four different metal tones: black, brushed nickel, brass, and gold. So I decided to update all of it with a little spray paint – Rustoleum’s Oil Rubbed Bronze:
The old doorbell was quite dated. Very 1971:
It looked worlds better with new paint, and a new button.
Once everything was back in place, the entry looked a little more put together and unified. In the before and after, I especially like the more mellow tone of the door handle and lock.
