Painting Tip: Paint Your Walls Like A Pro – Anti-Splatter Canvas Dropcloths

Previous Painting Tip: Tint Your Primer

We use floor covers to avoid staining the floor with paint splatters.  Most DIY just use cheap and convenient newspapers.  Others use plastic. However, the best anti-splatter floor cover is a canvas dropcloth.

Canvas does not rip easily and is very durable.  It lays flat and steady on the floor, preventing accidental slips.  Plus, canvas dropcloths can be folded easily around the corners and doorways. And best of all, you don’t have to throw them away after use.  You can reuse your canvas dropcloth many times.  And you can even use them in non-painting related projects.
