Line hard floors with brown masking or builders' paper, which absorbs spills, and tape it down around the room's edge. Cover carpeting with canvas drop cloths (paper tears in deep pile) and furniture with plastic ones.
Painters' masking tape helps ensure a clean line between the wall and the ceiling or trim. Also use it for painting windows. It's sold based on degree of adhesion, so select the one that's appropriate for your surface, such as low tack for glass or high tack for textured walls such as brick.
