oil rubbed bronze: stay away!

Mechanically, everything is great. And the color looks great. But, be prepared to replace parts every 8-12 months when the oil rubbed bronzed coating bubbles or otherwise comes off. We did our entire kitchen hardware in this color. So far I've replaced 3 pieces where the surface just has not adhered properly. I'm now resigned to keeping a back log of spare parts on hand. Again, they color looks great, and the mechanical works fine. It's just that the oil rubbed bronze surface coating is not very durable.
