Quick Tip #39: Painting Hack – Nail it!

{click to enlarge}

Here is another time and effort saving painting hack recently suggested on the Prominent Paints facebook page. This brilliant “why didn’t I think of that” décor trick was originally featured by Martha Stewart (clever, clever lady!). See it below…

#39  If you are about to paint a lightweight furniture item, like a chair or small table, gently tap a nail or push pin into the bottom of each leg. This will lift it from the ground ever so slightly and allow you to paint the whole chair in one go – no more flipping, no more sticking, no more crusty uneven edges. When painting smaller décor objects the pins will also serve as a no-hands way to hold onto your item while painting the edges.
