Rubbing In The Details

When I gave my china cabinet a makeover my plan was to replace the hardware. However after perusing several aisles filled with knobs and handles I couldn't find anything that called to me. So I gave the existing handles a makeover with a little spray paint. But I didn't stop there. I wanted a little character to the hardware so I pulled out the Rub 'n Buff and a stiff craft brush. With a very small amount of R'nB and some dabbing of my brush I managed to give the ho-hum hardware a little bit of soul. I love Rn'B for bringing out the details. I used it on the trim of the china cabinet in both the before. . . and after. It's the highlight on my entry mirror. And the itty bitty copper detail on my chandelier. I even used it to make wallpaper look like vintage tin on my daughter's wedding backdrop.The great thing about Rub 'n Buff is that a little goes a l-o-n-g way and it comes in an array of colors. It's a handy little item that every diy-er should have. This is not a paid for endorsement---I really do use and love this stuff!
