DIY Painted Tools

Update an old tool set with a fresh coat of paint. Find out how with our helpful tips and ideas.

Turn your everyday tools into 
an eye-catching set in less than ten minutes! First, prop up the tools so you can easily paint all sides. (We molded a ball of tin foil to keep them in place.) Then, wrap masking tape around the edges of the handle. Take your paintbrush and apply one layer of paint. Let the first layer dry and then reapply. Keep in mind that acrylic paint will adhere best to wood, metal, or plastic tool handles.

Supplies: acrylic paint, paintbrush, masking tape or painter's tape, tools
