If you live in an older home like I do, sometimes it can seem like there are so many things that need updating. I decided that I’d try to paint our old dingy looking doorbell cover to see if I could get away with not replacing it. I must say that I’m pleased with the results. It took three coats of paint that I had on hand,(I didn’t prime it) which is about 50¢ worth of paint. This saved a considerable amount of money because when I was pricing doorbell covers they ranged from around $24.00 to $75.00.
***Always make sure to read what you’re painting, I thought about trying to paint the fire alarms, but that’s a no no…it says right on them not to paint.***
