I want to repaint my interior door's hardware using the same colored
paint. I think I need oil based to replace the worn off oil based,
right, but the old paint doesn't look like it was brushed on. What do
you know about circa 1924 painted door hardware. Also, the hardware
is not fancy, just plain beveled edged door set type, made of brass.
But the handles are not brass, just the part that screws on the face
and back of the door.
