Paint brass shower doors. Is it possible to change the color and also have a durable nice looking finish?

Need to know if there is any way to change the silver aluminum color on my new shower door frame to an oil rubbed bronze color. Any suggestions appreciated

Unless these doors were very expensive, they are probably dyed anodized aluminum rather than brass, and your most promising path would be to lightly sand them and paint them with one of the fancy American Accents type paints after applying a Self-Etching Primer [affil. link to info/product on Amazon].

Alternately get new shower doors; they are available in what the industry calls "bronze" color, which is actually pretty close to brown. It should "go" reasonably well and you'll have a more durable finish than a repainted finish while retaining a metallic look. Best of luck.
