1 – Empty the room for easy access. A lot of folks think it’s simple enough to give their walls a quick coat of paint, all without actually having to remove any furniture. However, by doing so, you’re simply limiting your space, and making your job harder. Take the time to move out all the furniture, take down curtains and rods, and remove decorations. If there’s a large piece of furniture that’s too big to move, use a plastic sheet to cover it well.
2 – Use canvas or plastic sheeting to cover hard or soft surfacing. No matter what type of surfacing you have, don’t skip covering it with protective sheets. While canvas is a heavy material that typically stays in place, plastic sheets need to be taped, so they don’t move around.
3 – Don’t skimp on the tape. When it comes to using tape to adhere coverings, don’t be stingy, it can literally save your surfacing. Paint splatters can occur at any time, so don’t take a chance that the sheeting will stay exactly where it needs to. Add tape liberally along the perimeter of the walls, securing the plastic to the floors. Also, don’t forget to use tape to protect your trim, baseboards, and door frame, especially if you’re not that keen on the whole ‘splattered paint’ effect!
