Could I Paint Over These Door Handles Successfully with Metal Paint?

Postby LizMac42 » Sun Jan 10, 2016 1:31 pm

Hi DIY'ers,

Just moved into a house which has nice new doors but awful door handles. They are brass coloured with a plastic handle covered in a flower motif.

Could anyone advise on whether I might be successful in painting these all white. I looked in Homebase and saw a craft paint called Rust-Oleum 'Painters Touch' (in tins) which claims to cover metal and plastic.

Has anyone used this or could suggest something else?

Thank-you in anticipation of any help.

Yes, you may paint the door handle if you need to protect these from rust.
