What do nails, plastic wrap, and toothpicks have in common? Give up? They are all things that can make your painting easier.
As you can see, I have started painting the cabinets. When I first opened the can of paint, my first thought was, "Oh, this is way too light and way to grey." But I had to remind myself that it is a two step color process which includes a brown glaze which will warm up and darken the look. So for now I choose to not panic. But what I would like to talk about is some things that can make painting easier that were not necessarily made for painting.
Sometimes when painting over small holes where hardware needs to be replaced, the hole gets covered with paint. Using a toothpick, you can easily
clear the hole of the paint. You can use other things too, like pencil tips, nails etc. But I have always found toothpicks to be plentiful and always available in a kitchen.
