I have been waiting for a warmish day (above 50 degrees) to spray paint an old doorknob.
The end of December and the temperature is 63 degrees — spray paint time.
I stuck the knobs balanced on long screws through cardboard so they would stand up.
I took two partial cans of paint outside with me and started spraying. I meant to use “metallic charcoal” but accidentally started with “hammered” paint.
As soon as I noticed I switched to the metallic charcoal.
The powder room door had recently been painted grey (Secret).
The hammered texture of the first coat is just visible on the finished knob.
The charcoal knob looks good with the grey paint.
The top photo is the dead-end hallway before the renovation. The shallow closet is now removed and an opening allows access directly to the mudroom, side door, and kitchen. (See the first photo in this post.)

Do you enjoy looking back over changes?
