Tip for painting drawer pulls and knobs

Rather than trying to hold the knob with your fingers and paint at the same time, use the screw that will fit the knob to the door or drawer. Screw it in a little and use it as a handle to hold on to.

Then to let the paint dry, leave the screw in and sit the knob on the edge of something. I used the inside ledge of a chest of drawers I was painting at the same time, but you can use any flat edge. Even though you don't paint the flat underside of the knob - since you don't see that anyway - paint might have still lipped the edges, so either protect your surface or put them somewhere a few paint spots won't matter.
