Fixtures can go out of fashion quickly, and swapping them for new ones is an easy way to give your kitchen or bath a fresh look. If, however, you're looking to update your faucet with paint, reconsider. Not only is new hardware affordable and easy-to-install, but replacement is also a longer-lasting solution than a slapdash coat of paint atop an old chrome fixture. When applied to a faucet that comes into frequent contact with water, paint chips easily—not something you want to happen around your toothbrush. If you're absolutely determined to paint a faucet rather than replace it, be sure to sand well and prime with an automotive metal primer, then finish with automotive enamel.
