I chose black for its makeover.
I painted it with two coats in DIY chalk paint and distressed slightly. I then covered it with Martha Stewart metallic glaze in Black Coffee. It is hard to tell in the photo, but it really does give some dimension to the black.
I completely transformed the hardware by simply soaking them in ammonia and buffing them to a shine with a green scrubbing sponge.
They really pop off the black and become the star of the show.
