How to "reclaim" knobs and handles and save $$!

Hi, this is Kristin!  If you are thinking of refinishing kitchen cabinets or a dresser, buying new knobs can be a huge expense. Today I am going to show you how to redo your existing knobs and handles for a fraction of the cost of buying new ones.
The first thing you need to do is remove dust and dirt from the handles by wiping them down with a damp rag. 

Now they are ready to prime.  I use Zinsser Cover Stain, but you can also use a can of Rustoleum metal primer. 
 I usually only apply one coat of primer and let it dry for a couple of hours.  Once they are dry, lightly sand them with some 220 grit sandpaper. You are now ready to apply your choice of paint color.  I used black spray paint by Rustoleum.
 I spray on two coats of paint, waiting at least 2-3 hours between coats.
 All done!
