Is it safe to place kitchen utensils and silverware on painted surfaces or can the paint transfer?

My kitchen was just painted with “Kitchen and Bath” Behr paint. Normally I place items like silverware, knives, etc in the drawers directly.

After returning my items back to the drawers after the paint has dryed, I’m wondering if there is the chance that chemicals from the paint can transfer to my utensils and eventually get to my mouth.

So, besides the obvious risk of chipping, would it be safe to place these items directly onto painted surfaces?

    it is always best to line your drawers or better yet buy one of those utensil containers with the dividers

    I have done so, to no ill effect. But you might want to get some little organizer trays to keep your paint from chipping.

    Good luck!

    I would recommend buying an organizer or just lining your drawers. Although the paint will not cause any bad reactions because they are all lead free now you can still get an upset stomach or something from it, but you should be fine as long as the paint is dry.
