  • yes. just try not to stay around the paint for too long. you don't want to sit and inhale all those chemicals for a long period of time.

  • Yes I did. No precautions. She is fine, unless bossiness is a side effect.

  • You shouldn't.
    If you do, you should wear a proper mask with windows open and a fan blowing.

  • Yes, I painted. If not, it wouldn't have gotten done; I did use precautions though. I wore a mask, opened windows, took breaks and used low VOC paint.
