Small change, big impact

Here’s an example of how a fresh coat of paint can really change the feel of a piece.  It was a super fast project, even faster since it’s miniature

I find it easier to remove the hardware before painting and then reinstall rather than trying to avoid painting on them.  A light sanding followed by several coats of black paint created the base, and using sandpaper or an exacto blade, you can lightly distress all of the edges until you get the look you want.  Finish it off with a coat or two of polyurethane, and done!
