I had a near disaster tonight at the painting table. I used my normal set up - in front of the TV using two small folding tables to hold my work and tools. On returning from a trip to the bathroom, I nudged one table and jiggled the paint pallet off. Murphy's law held true and it fell paint side down depositing a lovely blob of blue paint (being used as the sea).
Luckily I listen to my wife (at least in this case) and use a drop cloth saving both the floor and my butt!
