I eventually plan on painting all our door knobs. Instead of going crazy and doing all the door knobs and getting confused as to where they go, etc. I have been painting them, room by room, when I finish painting the said room (the walls), the door knob will be spray painted. This before picture is obviously not the same knob as the after picture but as always, I forgot to take a before shot. I use Krylon Satin Nickel spray paint and now that the weather isn't so nice, I took this knob into work and painted it in our spray room. It took maybe 3 minutes and the knobs look so much nicer!
