I am starting a new series all about furniture painting tips! Each Tuesday I will share one tip from my eBook: The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Furniture Painting. (Yes, I know today is Wednesday – BUT I couldn’t wait to kick this series off and Labor Day messed my schedule up.) I am so passionate about teaching you how to paint furniture the easy way – I want to share with you my trade secret tips here on my blog.
Since there are over 119 tips in the book it is gonna take me over 2 years to get through the entire book of time saving tips! If you don’t want to miss a tip you can subscribe to have my posts sent to your Inbox daily and you can follow my Furniture Painting Tips Board on Pinterest! I will pin each of these tips on the board as they are published so you can follow along!
Let’s get on with today’s tip! Did you know that most furniture painting contractors will paint the hinges on furniture and cabinets? When painting cabinets you will still have to remove the door from the cabinet but there is no need to remove the hinges. Simply paint the hinge the same color as the rest of the project. If you want to protect the hinges from being painted you can cover them in Vaseline to protect them from being painted.
The same goes for keyholes on old furniture or hardware that can’t be removed. Just a thin layer of Vaseline will do the trick!
