~ Vintage French Drawer Pulls Patina

As I'm getting closer to having the new storage piece ready for organizing some of the art supplies, I rounded up the hardware so I could decide what to do with it. And then I saw the one painted in the picture below, and realized of course that's what I wanted.That wonderful patina of age when the metal turns to bit of turquoise. Now how to make the plain Jane look as pretty. But I think I can figure out the secret and do it. After all, I painted that one, too!

I hope I am not the only one who loves to experiment and then is quite sure I'll remember exactly how I did something only to totally forget a short time later.

his should be pretty easy though, since there appears to only be couple of steps. I'll let you know how it goes.

See Y'all Soon!


  1. What a beautiful pull! I know that you'll be able to recreate it or come up with something you love even more...I'm looking forward to seeing what you do!

  2. love the draw pull, I am sure you will do a beautiful job on it,, can't wait to see it when you are done.... and your room...


  3. Good luck! I have been meaning to do a similar project to my knobs in my house. Maybe I can get to it now that the kids are back in school.


  4. Please share your technique for the hardware when you can. I have a whole bedroom suite with hardware like that and I plan to refinish it to look more romantic. I love that patina look.

  5. My bathroom cabinets have the same pulls -- and do so my old night stands. One day soon, I'm going to give it a go -- Pat at Back Porch Musings recently posted on a similar technique with the same pulls. You might give it a look.

  6. It's gorgeous. Totally decorative all on it's own!
