Hi, my name is Erica Lugbill and I'm an Interior Designer working for Lugbill Designs in Chicago. Today, I'm going to covering how to protect your furniture when you're painting. Before starting a painting project, I like to move all the furniture to the center of the room. That way, you keep the perimeter nice and free and clear and you don't have to worry about bumping into it and you have mobility within the space. If you paint anything like I do, you've got to protect your furniture. I'm a mess. You have a couple of different options, my favorite and most durable option are these canvas tarps that you can find at your local hardware store. I like these because they're reusable, they're super durable and you don't have to worry about them ripping or tearing and they don't make that annoying plastic noise, like this. But, here's your less expensive option and then obviously, you just toss this out after you use them. When placing the tarp over the chair, just be sure to make sure the feet and all four sides of your furniture are covered. If you need a little extra protection, feel free to tape it down to the floor with painter's tape and that way you know you're covered. Thanks for watching my video today. I hope you found these tips helpful.
