Even more fun if you're doing two places simultaneously - trade furniture between the two.

Default A Tad Confused

The majority of my work is repaint (95%). Rugs, flooring and furniture are there. Dang - never fails . My price, as a single painter (that will pull in others when needed) is based on the amount of paint. The difficulty of prepping. I agree with the Teflon aids and have used them for a few years. Also a honken lot of cover "sheets". For any furniture that requires a cover, just use a flat bed sheet. I secure them with clips from a dollar store. You know they are going to fall down as you walk behind the dresser. Usually the client knows that there may be difficulty with one or more items. Like a wall to wall bookcase and will bring that up. If not, I do. Also address any full chest freezers that are there. I also don't think that furniture becomes a quote issue if you have spoken to the client before giving the quote.

I would worry about drops soaking through the sheets.
