Here’s an easy way to hide paint drips when you’re painting.
Our kitchen / dining room has a lot of brown trim in it, including a chair rail that goes around the dining room walls.
Recently we painted the ceiling and walls, and while doing the ceiling, several drops of paint dripped onto the wood trim.
By the time we noticed the paint drips, they were pretty firmly attached to the wood.
So we found a Sharpie that was the same color as the wood and colored over the white spots.
We just applied a little of the brown color and rubbed it on with a finger to help spread it and make it less obvious.
In no time, the paint drips were completely invisible.
You can use this idea on any color of paint when you need to hide something. Just pick a Sharpie that’s closest in color to the paint you want to match.
Rubbing with your finger after you use the Sharpie seems to help work the color in and make it match better.
We covered up the long splotch, too, after I took the photo. I left it there for the last photo so you could see where the drips had been.
