Getting pulled into a project

I have a thing for pulls. I found these (there were three) at an antiques and collectibles market and bought them without having a place to put them. They are brass and were painted brown. I used the little wire brush wheel on my Dremel and took the paint off of the high spots. I've found that I don't like the way brass looks when it's polished (too harsh for me), so I rubbed the pulls with Treasure Gold metallic wax. I apply it with my finger, and I usually choose Classic Gold or Florentine Gold. After the pulls sat for awhile, I buffed them with a paper towel to take off the excess gold. I really like the soft shine this product gives the metal.
