Things not to paint over:

Doorknobs
Hinges
Electrical outlets
Electrical cords
Wallpaper
Screws
Nails in the wall
Hooks on the wall
Glass anything

My whole house has 16 layers of paint over everything, including all the items listed above! And it''s all stuck together because the screws are filled with paint so I can''t get them out. Gah!!

LOL! That is our pet peeve actually. We even see it on some design shows and ask "What were they thinking?!!". It''s laziness and lack of taking time to properly prepare. I especially hate watching those shows and seeing them paint over all the outlet and light switch covers. Come on, it''s 2 screws to remove!!!
