Painted hardware (my pet peeve!)

What idiot paints over hardware? How hard is it to either remove it, tape it or go around it? While I was on hold with my eye doctor I started chipping away at the paint on the front door hardware, I just can't stand it.

Okay, I feel better now!


  1. Its nice to know I'm not alone. I have one of the old pulley style windows in my kichen that is never going to open because they painted over it so many times. I have dozens of light fixtures that have paint all over them, hinges, door knobs, even original wood work in the house has paint splatter on it. Who ever they hired for the painting in my house deserves to be beaten with their own paint brush. LOL

  2. I had to laugh when I saw this photo and even showed it to my husband. It could be a photo of our door hardware. Ours have khaki as the base layer, then dusty blue and finally creamy beige over the top. I'm considering taking them off and trying the method of leaving them in a cheap crock pot for a week on low. The paint is just suppose to fall off leaving you with clean new hinges. I have to admit I'm not holding my breath on this one, but it might be worth a try.


I love to get comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog, I hope you'll be back.
