    Tried using dust sheets. When I cover things like baths , radiators they seem to get pulled off. Feel like not organised too. Cant always find a tool or whatever. I used this garden seat in bath to reach up but it was wobbly 20190515_103715.jpg 20190515_105020.jpg 20190515_125850.jpg

    Sorry, looking for advice on how to cover things up and get organised when painting? Also, do people change shoes when they leave the decorating area so don't tread paint on carpet

    Plastic sheet - thin stuff held up with low tack masking tape. then sheets or other "softening" in the bottom of the bath. Work in old slippers and ...slip them off when exiting (y) Use plastic backed sheets - those or old school real heavy dust sheets are the only ones that will stop paint going through

    Those sheets are backed (y) as to the thin plastic sheet - you don't need to wrap the units, just hang the stuff at the top and let it drape down to the floor. Just don't let a draught through the room - it blows about. So you have thin plastic sheet hanging and your dust sheets on the floor.
