I’ve been working on refinishing a dresser that had some pretty nasty knobs and drawer pulls. Problem is: right now it is way to cold outside to spray paint. Solution: my husband built a little spray painting booth out of our basement bathtub enclosure. Up went some plastic drop cloth and a base of cardboard over the tub. On went the exhaust fan to ventilate so we didn’t all succumb to the fumes!
…….and we found a great way to keep the pulls upright! That’s right! Toothpicks!! Inserted into the cardboard at an angle they held the pulls up enough to spray all around. I went ahead and turned them around after they dried and resprayed just to make sure the paint coating was even and to make sure I hit the small spots where the toothpicks were touching. Worked wonderfully!
If my family hadn’t come down with a bout of the stomach bug the dresser would probably be complete….but since it isn’t you’ll have to wait for a picture of the completed pulls and dresser!
