So on to the actual post...We have this great door in the living/dining room. It is SO pretty, but like a lot of older features it needed a little love. One big area that I hoped to restore was these really great doorplates and knobs (complete with skeleton key!) that had been painted over at some point. Here is one...
I figured 'what the heck' - so into the pot they went.
Old Town Home that adding a few drops of dish soap can help with the smell.
After about 15 minutes of boiling, I used a pair of tongs to check on my knobs - and wouldn't you know? It worked!
A few minutes later I had them back on the door in all their antique glory!
So there you go - how to restore antique doorknobs and plates in less than an hour - without spending a dime.
Can you help me out and pin this if you happen to have a DIY board? Thanks!
