    Paint a Door Without Waiting for Each Side to Dry

    By Julie Peri–

    Happy New Year! We hope you had a great winter break, and are ready to start the new year off with more fun tool tips. Have you ever wondered the best way to paint a door, without having to wait for each side to dry? Here’s the answer! Drive a screw into the center of the top edge and two near the bottom corners. Set the screws on sawhorses, paint, flip, and paint the other side. Easy as that.

    We have more fun workshops and events coming up this year. Start the new year off by learning a new skill at Dykes With Drills!
