I had such a first time at our August Bring Your Own Furniture Paint Workshop! I had a student paint a beautiful night stand. She went back and forth about what color to stain the handles (I usually use Rubb n Buff).She decided that she wanted dark black handles and we went ahead and tried painting them! This tutorial is so bare bones because the process is so easy!
First, clean your hardware. Here is a nice tutorial video from Martha Stewart on how to clean antique hardware.
Grab a small detail paint brush (I buy packs at Wal-Mart or the craft store) and paint your hardware, making sure that you fill in the small details.
Wait for the paint to dry (it changes colors as it dries), then apply Endurance Finish all over the hardware. And you’re done! Remember that it takes Endurance a week to cure. You can apply another coat of Endurance for a harder finish after the first coat dries.
All of the furniture pieces with the exception of the industrial shelving unit are used pieces that I've re-homed and painted with Fusion Mineral Paint.

She is the King of finding awesome stuff for cheap or free! Our living room is a really narrow rectangular shape so we were having a hard time finding a coffee table that was small enough.
