Here’s an honest tidbit. When I first started painting furniture, I focused so much on getting the outside pretty, that I didn’t pay much attention to the inside… Okay, I didn’t pay ANY attention to the inside.
I often had brush-marks on the side of the drawers, inside the drawers, and over-spray on the inside of my pieces.
Now, before I paint, I take the extra 5-10 minutes to mask and cover the areas of my furniture that should be kept clean. Prepping is key!
Whether painting a piece for a client or for your own home, your furniture will look clean and professional when using this quick-tip. Additional ways to cover up large areas of furniture when spray-painting is using a fitted sheet, plastic, newspaper, or drop-clothes.
If you have any techniques you use to keep paint off places it shouldn’t be… I’d love to hear them!

Wishing you an amazing day!
Thanks for the useful information. I never take time to prep my furniture that I paint for myself….
