Painting Cabinet Hinges
 
I'm looking to update the hinges on my kitchen cabinets. My original plan was to just replace them but apparently finding 3/8" overlay hinges is nearly impossible. And the only one I was able to find is brass colored like my current ones.

So now it looks like if I want my hinges to have a satin nickle finish my only option is to paint them. My question is if the paint will hold up on a hinge because of the motion and friction of it opening and closing? Also, can anyone recommend a specific type of paint to get the best results?

Even better, if anyone knows where I could purchase satin nickle ones I would rather go that route. I have scoured the internet and e-mailed a bunch of companies and have come up empty so far.

One of my pet peeves is walking into a house and seeing hinges and outlets etc. painted over with a brush. It just never works. The only way I'd ever paint hinges is if I could take them apart, have them properly stripped and then painted w/ a sprayer.

I honestly think it would be more work than it's worth to do it this way, but that's just me - like I said ... I'm picky.

I agree, my plan is to spray them, don't think I can get the pins out to disassemble them though.

Lowes and HD both have them and there's hundreds of places that sell them, there no all that uncommon.
A new one work so much better then a painted one.

Thanks for trying to help but those do not look like what I have. What I have looks like the link in my original post.

A metalshop with finishing capability could annodize them. The hardware restoration folks at Willmette Hardware can help as can Weibold outside Cincinnati. Both are reasonable but not cheap.

Might be cheaper to change systems.

I called locally about anodizing them but was told they only can do aluminum items.

What other kind of system could I use?

Here is the URL for Wilmette Hardware. If anybody knows about cabinet hardware it is them. They have restored many door and cabinet hardware things for me. They sell restored and new hardware as well. I think they would be worth a call?
