If you feature my work, my watermarks must be left intact. You may not copy projects, but you can add your own twist to them and make them your own as long as you fully disclose on your blog that your post was inspired by The Painted Hinge and link back to my post that inspired you.

At Your Own Risk
You are following my instructions and suggestions here at your own risk. Always use common sense when doing DIY projects. Read and follow the manufacturer’s directions and safety precautions for the tools, materials, and products you use. If you choose to use materials that could possibly have contaminants on them (for example, reclaimed pallet wood) you do so at your own risk.
