Before updating or touching up a chair or small, lightweight table, elevate it over the work surface by gently tapping a nail into the bottom of each leg. The legs will get better air circulation for drying and won't stick to the surface.

I love these nuggets of wisdom from Martha and her company! Thank you, I'll be painting chairs soon and this is a great tip.
