How To | Spray Paint A Bathroom Faucet

I promise that this is my LAST post about my bathroom!  I bet you are all just as tired reading about it as I am writing about it... but I just had to share this project!
It is no secret that I am a firm believer in a can of spray paint.  I totally think you could spray paint almost anything!  When I decided I wanted gold hardware in my black and white bathroom I debated for a while about buying new or spraying my existing, but once my DIY opps happened I had no choice!  Spraying it was!

Spraying my faucet was no different than spraying anything else.... except I used a clear coat.  My favorite gold spray has a brassy matted look to it, and over time after oils from the hands get on it it starts to look blotchy.  I wanted to protect that and give the hardware some jewelry sheen!  Two coats of the clear gloss and I was good to go!

Don't forget to spray the drain also!  I think the drain pulls it off!  And not to mention the gold against the white and marble mosaic!  I was totally unsure of how I would like it.  I really had my heart set on a faucet with a spread {where you can see the sink or counter in-between the handles} but I love thin one more!  It makes a huge statement for very little $ and time!  Best projects ever!

Wow, it looks fantastic! I thought about spray painting my bathroom faucet before, but I was worried that the paint might not hold up. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of it - I didn't think about using a clear coat, so maybe that will keep it beautiful!

It looks beautiful, Tiffany! I'll be anxious to hear how it holds up, it would be great to know if you could skip a few of the steps I did on mine. Thanks so much for stopping by Best of the Nest to share it!

I love this project! I will spray paint almost anything too but I never thought to do this! Thanks for the inspiration! I'm curious to know how it holds up.
