If you’re anything like us, painting furniture legs is not on the top of your list of favorite things to do. I don’t know how we didn’t think of this before, but better late than never I say!
I (Dorrie) am refinishing a massive desk for a client. When my hubby and I unloaded it from the van to put in the
garage workshop, he had the good idea to remove the legs to make it easier for me to paint them. Now I have a desk on the floor and the legs, all eight of them, unattached. I wasn’t overly keen on holding them by the part that screws back into the desk and wasn’t sure how’d I’d rig them up to dry…Suddenly the light bulb went on!!! I found a piece of scrap wood, got the drill out, and drilled a few holes in it the size of the screw that was on top of the legs. I took the legs, screwed them into my 1×4 and voila! Problem solved. They can dry standing up, both of my hands were free to paint and it took all of 1 minute to do!
