Refinishing old steel furniture fixtures



2004

I am refinishing an old mahogany buffet and the fixtures are steel - chipped and rusty. I read something about turning them black and re-using them vs. buying new ones. The book said something about using ammonia fumes. Could you tell me how to blacken these fixtures with ammonia fumes? I'm not sure if it was only ammonia or if I am supposed to mix it with something.

Thanks!
