Question: Part of my wood fence is on the property line of my neighbor. I'd like to put paint on top of the cedar boards that constitute the fence to protect the wood but the paint runs over to the other side that is not painted. The paint is an off white color but a little of it spilled over doesn't seem to be too noticeable. Is there a way to prevent too much spillage?
Answer: You could temporarily nail a piece of plywood or cardboard to the neighbor’s side. This would allow you to spray or brush the paint and the paint between the boards would end up on the piece of plywood. Keep moving the plywood along the length of the fence as you paint.
