How to drape and tape before painting a ceiling


Step 1. In rooms with hanging light fixture, shut off the power to the circuit, lower the plate cover, and pull a trash bag up from the bottom of the fixture. Tie a knot at the top, neatly covering the entire piece. In bathrooms, place a lawn-sized trash bag over the toilet and tape it in place.

 

Step 2. Remove as many objects as possible from the room then cover everything else with plastic. Cover the remaining area of the floor with canvas drop cloths.

 

Step 3. Press the top half of 2 masking tape along the joint between the ceiling and the wall. Leave the bottom half of the tape loose.

 

Step 4. Slide sheet plastic under the masking tape, and press the tape down just enough to hold it in place. Make sure the plastic is long enough to protect the baseboards as well as the walls.
