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!

    I looooove rub n’ buff. I have used it on so many different things including plaster medallions, mirror frames, picture frames and moulding. It’s so great for completely changing the look of something:)
