The hardware in our new house is
all done in a brushed nickle finish.
All except for the hinges on the front and side door,
which we purchased prehung
at a discount from our local
The side door came with bright gold hinges.
Wanting them to match the rest of the hardware,
I pulled out my trusty tube of...
Rub 'n Buff.
I am using a silver leaf color,
but this product comes in 16 different metallic colors.
The possibilities and applications are endless!
To do my hinges,
I simply put tape on either side of the hinge.
Rubbed on the color with my finger.
Buffed it with a clean cloth.
Removed the tape...
And received the satisfaction that I now
have matching hardware!
