In this video, Erica Lugbill, the owner of Lugbill Designs, a high-end residential remodeling and interior design firm in Chicago, provides quick and easy tips on protecting furniture when you’re painting your home.
Erica suggests moving your furnitures to the center of the room, in order to keep the perimeter clear so you can move freely in the space, which can save time, and paint splattering onto things it shouldn’t.
To cover furniture, you can use plastic sheets or canvas tarpaulins, available at local hardware stores, or chain stores like Lowes or Home Depot. If you plan to paint in the years to come, and have the space to store them, canvas tarpaulins are a great option, as they are reusable and durable, and you don’t have to worry of them ripping or tearing.
When covering a chair with a canvas tarp Erica suggests being sure to cover the feet of the furniture too. She recommends taping the tarp down to the floor using painters tape.
