A KEEN decorating fan has shared her best tips for painting furniture around your home – and all you need is an exotic sock.
Marley, who describes herself as a ‘home decorator’, says she’s believed in the useful trick for the past few years and why a simple paintbrush can’t achieve the finish. such perfect.
And the best part about this nifty social media user trick is that not only does it save time, but your hands stay clean all the time, and you won’t have to wipe the polish off your nails for hours afterward.
In a new video, Marley reveals her rather unconventional painting technique and where she uses it without it..
“So the sock method is a painting method that I have been using for several years,” she explains.
Marley later said she discovered it after watching a fellow painter use the necessary equipment in a closet and that she has been sold ever since.
“I didn’t invent this,” she continued, “but it works great.”
Marley then sheds light on exactly how it’s done, as she goes on to say, “You basically just take a disposable glove and put it on your hand, then cover it with a clean sock go up.”
Further emphasizing the importance of “being clean,” Marley later sharedpart of the painting process.
In the video posted to her TikTok account @marley.makes.things“Then you just dip your sock in the paint and rub it on your surface,” says the influencer.
As Marley speaks, footage of her performing the same technique is played in the background, as she shows herself applying a coat of dark blue paint to the sock and painting it over an oak table.
As it clings to furniture seamlessly without much effort, Marley continues: “It works really well to get a very smooth finish without any brush strokes.”
The interior fan then explains how she mainly uses this technique on furniture in her home – but it also helps her transform stairs and railings.
She tells her 526.8k followers: “I often use this to paint furniture.
“But I also use it to paint my railings, which I really recommend because it goes in and out of all the little crevices and has no brushstrokes.”
She then lays out the final result and how the black shade completely covered the previously gray wooden balustrades.
But Marley isn’t the only one getting in on the action, as others have been raving about the stealthy technique for several months.
Plenty of other social media users joined the action and explained why they ditched the roller or brush in favor of a simple sock.
One person who also decided to paint a staircase with this method defended it against critics, who wrote: “It takes a lot of time to paint a balustrade. A sock is 20 times faster, that’s it.”
