A DIY fan has revealed how to paint ceilings without creating mess all over the floor and your furniture.

The woman, called Karlin, shared in a TikTok video her top tip if you're "too lazy" to cover everything up.

In the post, the decorating whizz said: "If you need to paint a ceiling but are too lazy to cover all the furniture, then I have a hack for you."

She proceeded to show how she had attached a plastic paint tray liner beneath the roller to catch any drips of white paint as she coated the ceiling.

Karlin explained: "All you need to do is take your liner and poke a little hole, slide it into the pole and then duct tape it real classy."

She added: "Look how well this is working – it's not dripping on my head, it's dripping on the tray."
