Painting a chrome shower door to look like brass
I have a chrome framed shower glass door (just new) and hardly ever used. I want to change all the bathroom fixtures to brass. Is there a paint product that is available to change the chrome to brass on the chrome shower door frame(at least on the outside)?
I wouldn't want it to look "painted".
This is a guest bathroom that does not get utilized very often at all.
I just don't want to go to the expense of replacing the chrome with brass (Basco Shower Door System)

You want a paint which doesn't look like paint? There are lots of brass colored paints, but they all look, more or less, like....well...paint.

There was a post not to long ago regarding all of the difficulties in trying to get paint to stick to chrome, so you may not end up being satisfied with the results no matter what. That being said, you may want to look into tinted lacquers - they may preserve the metallic appearance and avoid a matt painted look.
