I fell in love with these glass knobs.
But, I also fell for these bronze with copper highlights cup pulls.
Sadly, they were from different cultures. And their cultures didn’t get along.
But, with some gentle persuasion and a little Rub n’ Buff I convinced them that they were more alike than they thought.
Simply squeeze a small bit of Rub n’ Buff Gold Leaf onto a Q-tip and lightly rub it around the rim of the metal on the glass knobs.
Then buff off the excess with a clean paper towel.
Voila, matching cabinet hardware – Rubbed Bronzing Cabinet Hardware!
They are living in harmony…”Ebony and Ivory…together in perfect harmony..side by side…” Okay, quick, name that singer!
Love simple little ideas like this. Thanks for the post and the idea
You always create things to make them live in perfect harmony!!!…Love them Brittany!
Shirley, thanks for your sweet comment. I wish everything in this house was in perfect harmony…soon, very soon. 😉
Like the idea, mixing and matching is what its all about with finishing touches. Thanks for the cool tip.
Wow! Perfect! I want to paint a lamp oil rubbed bronze and if I can’t find it now I know I can paint it black and give it a little Rub n’ Buff! Thanks for the inspiration!
Susan, have you seen the Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint? It is a good start, but the Rub n’ Buff would really add that extra luster. Thanks for your comment.
That little bit of paint made a world of difference. Way to be creative.
LOVE this tip! Where were you last summer when I settled for nickel-finish spray paint instead of what I really wanted: this look. 😉 Thanks for sharing–will totally be doing this.
Leilani, I was still enjoying my old kitchen unaware of what was in store ;-D. Thanks for your comment, and it’s never too late to change out hardware!
Hey, those turned out great! Way to make it work in your favor.
Well you just made that look way too simple! They match perfectly.
Stevie wonder and Paul McCartney!! Oh yes I love your presentation!! [email protected]
Thank you Di!
Oh yes…a match made in Heaven indeed! Just gorgeous!
Haha Paul McCartney & Stevie Wonder. Love how you made your hardware a match made in heaven
You know you had that song in your head all day Monday…Ebony & Ivory ;-D There you go, it’s back. Thanks for your comment.
I liked them the way they were, but also like what you’ve done. I kinda like mixing thing up.
Janet, you are a brave woman. I worry about mixing too much ;-D
Inka Gold is fabulous too! It’s non toxic from the craft store, rubs on beautifully and no smell.
Vicki, I’ll have to try that. Is it a color of Rub n’ Buff or something different?
Inka gold is the brand name of another wax based metallic paint (beeswax in this case) that can be applied to virtually any surface and buffed just as rub and buff is used. It comes in a bunch of different colors.
That is some pretty creative stuff you were able to do there. Great work at making both sets work for your home.
Nicely done! And I think they work great together, just like Paul and Stevie.
Ding ding ding ding ding! You knew the singers! Thanks for your sweet comment.
