Thanks to Lena and her always creative DIY ideas, I bought a $5 can of brushed nickel spray paint. I removed all the gold door pulls, cleaned them, and scrubbed them a bit with a scrub pad. I was looking out in our garage for 220 grit sandpaper, where DH had everything but, so I googled an alternative and came up with a basic scrub pad I already had underneath my sink.
This is the result:
Not bad and better than they were! $50 saved in not having to purchase drawer pulls, not to mention what I have (at least for the time being) saved on 2 new vanity light fixtures, that would probably have been at least $100 each. At some time down the road, I will probably buy new ones, but for now the spray paint fix will do the trick.
