Clean Concept: Put All Your Messy Jobs in One Egg Carton
Issue: Issue 288
Posted Date: 11/15/2011
To make an awkward job easy and clean, I used egg cartons to support
wooden knobs I was painting. First, I divided the cartons in two to
make handling them more manageable. I then used a sharp knife to
punch a hole in each of the egg holder pockets.
To paint the knobs, temporarily put the mounting screw through the
previously made knife hole. Hold screw with one hand and paint the
knob with the brush held in your other hand.
The egg carton keeps paint off your hands and the work area, and makes
a great support for the knobs while the paint is drying.
