Prevent painted items from sticking while drying
I was repainting some large wooden letters for my daughter’s new “big girl room” the other night while Chica was over. I had finished the first coat on about four of the letters and was going back to do the second coat when I noticed they had kind of stuck to the cardboard I had placed them on to dry. It was a frustrating mess and I had to spend time peeling the paper off. I looked over at Chica smirking at me and asked her if she had any tips on preventing something like this from happening. And she replied, “As a matter of fact, I do!”
Well, of course she does! Chica had the same problem when she was repainting her small nightstand for the second time. She used some simple push pins inserted in the bottom of the drawers to act as feet.
This worked perfectly for me! A few of the push pins in the back elevated the letters of the paper so they could dry, also provided me a handle to hold onto when I was painting the edges of the letters.
