  • Try Goo Gone. $5 at Walmart for a big spray bottle. JB Weld cant stand up to it.

  • If it is a small spot you can try to cut the paint out of it. That may be less noticeable, depending on how big it is. You might want to arrange furniture so that cut spot is getting some traffic - so it is mashed down a bunch ;)
