Spray painted it Dark Brown
then used a Dark Stain, only 1 coat,
probably should've done 2 but, I was impatient.
Tip: Use gloves, purchase mineral oil before
you start. You'll need it to clean the brushes and your
wedding ring, (if you forget to wear gloves), oops!
Still want to paint the hardware,
I'll just spray paint it silver.
P.S. Still working on the shutters on my house,
hopefully I'll have that up by the weekend.
