Here’s a great follow up and spray painting tip!
Last week, I shared how to protect drawers while spray painting – no painter’s tape or newspaper required for this easy technique.
After hearing this, I’m never going to battle wrapping and taping newspaper around shapely furniture ever again.
Instead, while spray painting, I’m going to protect hard to mask furniture with plastic wrap!

This morning I tried the Glad Wrap technique on a wicker chair. I had previously spray painted it black, so I thought I’d add a fun contrast by adding gold dipped feet.
The plastic wrap is fast and easy to apply.
I wrapped it around the legs of the chair I wanted to protect. Then I sealed the top and bottom with a some tape. The plastic wrap clings to itself really well and the tape holds it in perfect position.
After the paint dried, I removed the plastic with a pair of scissors being careful not to scratch or damage the existing finish.
Great idea Andie…thank you for sharing! And Karen, if you’re reading, I hope this tip helps you out with your patio project. 🙂
