Painting a dresser......
 
I'm painting my dresser with chalk paint later this week. Do you put it up on 2x4s or something, so that you can easily paint the feet? I have a dropcloth to put under it, but I'm concerned that I won't be able to paint around the feet easily. Looking for helpful tips! TIA!

I just paint the furniture directly on the drop cloth. Hereís what I painted (last photo is the before):

I have furniture moving pads that I put my furniture on top of to paint so that I get good coverage.

I attached a pictures. I use the sliders, not the permanent-ish sticky ones. It just elevates the item a bit :)

You can search furniture moving pads on Amazon

I painted a china hutch a couple summers ago. Yes, I did set the base up on bricks to paint so I could get to the bottom legs easier. It was just enough to paint them easy without getting near the floor or dropcloth.

Have fun and enjoy the newly painted dresser.
