How do I make painting tripods for cabinet doors?

by Debwilcox1

Saw it on here, cannot find it. Going to paint kitchen cabinets, would like little pointy tripods for doors to rest on while painting/drying. Thanks y'all!

    I just use pieces of wood, screw some screws through them and use the screw points for support.

    Lowe’s item 689980; Home Depot SKU 10015949; both are 10-packs for about $5; called painters tripods both didn’t show up in a search. Amazon has wider selection if you are looking for a specific brand.

    I just grab 4 cans of the same size. Like tuna cans. When I'm done with them I just put them back in my pantry.

    In one tutorial I saw, they painted the inside of the cabinet door and then used bulletin board push pins. Push the pins into the door and it will rest on the little heads of the pins. I thought that was really smart!

  • The pointy tripods are a pain in the butt. Use scrap wood instead or cans. Paint the insides of the door first so that if you scratch them, it's not the fronts that everyone sees.
