They wanted over $100 dollars to replace the ugly chrome toilet paper roll, towel bar and hand towel with the newer oil rubbed bronze finish. I purchased a $5 can of oil rubbed bronze paint and sprayed it on all the chrome. What a nice change, which included the flush handle on the toilet.

Nice touch doing the toilet handle. I'll have to remember that one.

I just picked up a few oil rubbed bronze (ORB) faucets yesterday along with ORB door handles. They should look good after replacing that old door with the new 6 panel doors I just purchased. On my next trip, I also plan on adding an ORB wood trim around the mirror.

A few more before and after pics... New vinyl flooring, some cheap granite squares, and an inexpensive oil rubbed bronze faucet.

Have a look at the curved curtain rod for the shower, you wouldn't beleive the difference it makes.

The other shower has the curved shower rod. I'm holding out until I can find an oil rubbed bronze finish to color match the metals.

Nice job, this is what I am going to do for my kitchen project next time.
What type of paint did you use? Did you use it inside and out?
