An Ode to Simple Tools

Is it just me or have you wasted time trying to find boxes, paint containers or jars to balance your projects on while you paint them? Enter: these little yellow triangles! They're called Painter's Pyramid and I found the for a few bucks at Home Depot, near the putty knives.

So far I've used them mostly to repaint picture frames. For some reason, I'm always buying old wood frames or mirrors and changing the colors. (Don't judge - you know you have your own obsessions.) It may seem like a small thing, but they make it possible for me to paint all the way around the back edges without any waiting. 

What can I say? Sometimes it's the little things that make us the happiest. 

Here they are in action on my kitchen countertop:
