The project

 

I spray painted the tap and mixer in my bathroom and was pretty impressed with how it turned out. After looking at prices to buy a brand new one, I thought I would try out the Dulux 300g Metalshield Epoxy Enamel Spray Paint Satin Black first since it would save me a lot of money and it would be such a quick D.I.Y. project. 

 

How to spray paint tapware

 

Here's how I turned my tapware from chrome to black.

 

Step 1

Clean the tapware well.

 

Step 2

Sand with 240 grit sandpaper.

 

Step 3

Clean again to make sure the area is ready for paint.

 

Step 4

Tape around the tapware to make sure spray paint doesn't go everywhere.

Step 5

Spray following the instructions on the bottle (I applied two coats).

@rubytuesday1953  Fantastic job @lifestylebymari. We also have the same problem. The black tap ware is sooooo expensive. This seems like a great alternative. We're doing up our laundry and we want to update the taps to black. How's the wear factor?
