So while painting our banister, we may have spilled a little bit of stain on the carpet!! I would like to say that I held my cool...but I was super frustrated:(
Then I remembered a neat old trick I learned from my college roommates Kristen and Aimee. They love nail polish and would paint their nails a couple of times each week so spills were bound to happen. When it would, they would simply trim out the stained piece of carpet with scissors. Brilliant!
Obviously, this wouldn't work for larger stains but if it's little sprinkles like mine were, it's works like a charm.
