Quick Change Operation

Way back in March, I spray painted the handles on our media cabinet silver. I wasn't super-happy with it and Sara admitted she didn't like the look either (I love an honest opinion).

Sorry the last detail pic is so fuzzy. I didn't want to use the flash and I apparently cannot hold still long enough for the camera to shoot without it. Meh. And they actually still look silvertoned in the close-up photo, but they're not. I sprayed them with everybody's favorite metal tone fix-all: Oil-Rubbed Bronze. I wasn't crazy about the spray paint itself and the way it sprayed, but the finish is nice and the tone is much more complementary to the wood finish. I had planned on painting this piece, but at the rate I work I don't expect to get to it until next year sometime. LOL

So what do we think? An improvement?

I like it the best! The piece is beautiful! The silver was just too much contrast because the piece is bigger and the handles are small on it. But the oil rubbed look fits the piece well.

It looks great! I def. like the ORB better than silver, too.
