Update your kitchen with new-looking hardware and coordinate your faucet in the same color. A few coats of Universal Spray Paint in Satin Bronze gives your kitchen a facelift in easy DIY fashion. 

Before you begin, make sure all hardware is removed from the cabinetry and placed on a drop cloth. Cover your surrounding area with Kraft paper, plastic or a drop cloth.

Shake the spray can vigorously for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. Once you're ready, hold the spray paint can upright 8-12” from surface of your item and apply it in a steady back-and forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Keep the can the same distance from the surface and in motion while in use. Apply two or more light coats a few minutes apart for best results. The paint will be dry to touch in 30 minutes, to handle in 1 hour, and is fully dry in 24 hours. Recoat within 1 hour or after 48 hours.
