Painting With Pyramid Power

As many of you know, I truly hate painting. It is extremely rewarding, when it is done! I recently stained and finished an old door and in the process managed to almost glue the door to the sawhorses it was on. No matter how careful I was, finishing the door edges resulted in stick-i-tude to the surface the door was resting on. Enter the Painters Pyramid. It seems some clever inventor, (Mike Bucci), decided to solve the problem of painting the sides of objects more easily. Painter’s Pyramids are three-sided pyramids made of a specially formulated, lightweight plastic. Each pyramid has rounded points to minimize the “touch point” on the object being painted, while reducing the possibility of marking the wood. The pyramids have holes make them easy to attach to a sawhorse or other work surface. The makers recommend painting only the top surface of an object prior to turning it over on the Painter’s Pyramid™ and then painting all remaining surfaces. For you color conscious buyers, they are available in blue, yellow and red. Very reasonably priced at $4.99 for a package of ten. Available at

About Marc Lyman

Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine!

  1. A budget minded alternative, ( not that $5 is going to break the bank). But Free is always a great price. Pizza toppers ( the little white table with three little legs work great as well, sadly they are not teflon coated like the Pyramids). Most local pizza joints have them (not the chains, most do not use them, but the niche pizza stores do) Next time your picking up a pizza ask for a few.
