Refinish a faucet
I have a faucet that has an antique brass finish. Is it possible to refinish and get a chrome finish on this?June Nguyen

Chrome plating of anything (even orchids) is possible, Ms. Nguyen. But the real answer may be that faucets are mass-produced, resulting in very low labor cost -- so refinishing will probably cost more than a new faucet, and you may lose interest. Refinishing onesy-twosies is an extremely labor intensive process that is justified when an item is quite expensive, of heirloom quality, or of sentimental value to you though.
