Step 3: Polishing

Thrift Store Console Makeover - polish

Using brass polish, I made the hardware shine like the top of the Chrysler Building. Any time you are going to polish brass, first make sure it is really brass. The easiest way is to see if a magnet will stick to it. A magnet will not stick to solid brass, which means it will be fine to polish. Brass plate, which a magnet will stick to, can rub off with polishing.
