Kitchen hinges have me coming unhinged!

I'm using Annie Sloan's chalk paint on old kitchen cabinets and trying to decide whether to paint the hinges. The drawers and doors do not have metal pulls. Any thoughts?

Don't paint the hinges.

Painting hinges is a lost cause.

Do not paint hinges, you will need handles get hinges to match even if just a touch of metal in the knobs and handles.

I will take 35 hinges off before I paint. The other way was so much easier. Maybe I can get my son to help.

Use your cordless drill with a phillips head screwdriver bit.
