  • depends on if the paint is safe. I dont remember which one is, maybe someother moms do. Just please dont use paint stripper! My MIL used it when she was preggo and was outside on a windy day and it killed her baby!

  • Paint in a well ventilated area, and try to stay away from stains, and paint thinners. My husband and I are repainting my dresser, nightstand and closet doors so we took them out of the house to my grandparents workshop, that way the fumes won't be trapped in our home while they dry.
