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.
When Andie from SliceofDIY.com saw this tip posted on Facebook, she chimed in with an AMAZING follow up idea – how to mask off curved legs, rounded chairs and other hard to mask furniture.
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. 🙂

Wonderful idea! Just check to make sure the cling wrap didn’t leave sticky residue as it often does. I think soap and water would clean it off once the paint dries. Great tip! Thank you!
GLAD you added this Christina…lol. Okay, bad joke. The Glad Cling Wrap didn’t leave any residue but thanks for adding this because some brands might.:)
