Default How to properly tape this room off to spray paint the ceiling?

I have a paint sprayer. How exactly do I tape off all the walls and floor? What materials and technique?

Finish your floor repairs first. Once all the dirty work is done, buy the cheap plastic and tape the edge right next to the ceiling, then go to town.

Lol. The concrete is filled in. All floor repairs are done. I just need to finish some drywall work before it's ready to paint.

When you say "next to" the ceiling, do you mean under the ceiling? Is there a good picture I could Google?

If you are doing the ceiling first why worry about the walls?

Show us a picture of the sprayer you plan on using.

No way would I go to all the trouble of all the prep time, and clean up, to paint a single ceiling with a sprayer.

Agreed! Masking the ceiling off, would be the least of my worries.

Because I didn't plan to paint the walls other than touching up what will show after the cabinets are put in.

Finishing the walls, priming and painting before installing the cabinets.

After the walls are done, you don't think I should tape/plastic anything off so I don't spray paint on the walls?

That pic is a couple days old. That large hole in the wall is covered by drywall now.
