If you need to paint an item that's difficult to cover, such as a chair, skip the brushes and try a better tool such as a sponge or painter's mitt.
A painter's mitt features a plastic liner so your hand doesn't get covered in paint. Just use a sponge to apply paint directly onto the mitt. Wrap the mitt around the item you're painting, such as a spindle on a chair, and just massage the paint onto the surface. Finish with the sponge and get into any recesses you might have missed and clean up any drips.
