Who doesn't hate painting around door hardware? It's way too much trouble to take the knob off or even loosen the plate to paint under it! ~
I was cutting little notches in Frog Tape so it would fit in a nice circle on the metal plate. My friend, Wendy, couldn't see what I was doing and thought I was doing something altogether different.
She thought I was putting an elastic band around the plate. Bingo! Brilliant! It works! ~
The elastic forms itself perfectly to the plate and is tight enough to make sure no paint bleeds underneath. It's a breeze to remove and it's free with broccoli! ~
Thank you, Wendy, for that brilliant idea. You saved me time, money and gave me a use for my elastic band hoarding habit!
