  3. How do you paint the hardware? I love the look it gives – just not sure how to get there!

    • oh my gosh, its SO easy LISA! make sure its clean then get out your color, paint it, let it dry and wipe it back some, or sand a little, then seal it – painted slightly aged back hardware, I think, adds so much character…
