Quick Stripes with ScotchBlue Painters Tape

Ya'll know how we roll over here. Projects must be completed during a nap time (or 10).

I have this wall upstairs that has a small gallery wall. (You can never have too many right???)


But it was kinda boring and needed something. I've been wanting to paint stripes on it for a while, but haven't gotten around to it. Thanks to the folks at ScotchBlue, I was able to do this project quick and easy!



To paint stripes, I measured the distance between the top and bottom moldings and then divided by 7. I wanted 7 stripes. Odd numbers are always better to me. I also wanted the top and bottom stripe to stay the original wall color so I didn't have to cut in. (We work fast here people!)
When divided out, my stripes were going to be about 12 in. each. I left the excess for the bottom stripe so it would be less noticable.


I used the Scotch Blue tape to attach my laser level to my tripod. I started with the middle stripe and taped from there.
I also had a helper for this project!

In order to make sure I didn't paint the wrong stripes, I used to tape to mark off the ones not getting painted.





I had to tape the ends of the stripes that made the corner to our 2 story family room.



When I was done using the Scotch Blue Painters Tape I mixed my paint. I didn't want to buy any new paint so I just mixed a few colors I had on hand.



The stripes look different widths but they're not, I promise! You have to remember to tape the outside of the paint line from the stripe you're painting. I did have to take the tape off one line because I accidentially taped the inside!

After painting each stripe, I quickly peeled off the Scotch Blue Tape. Make sure you take it off while it's still wet. You'll get a much better paint line that way.



I absolutely LOVE how it turned out.


It was so quick and easy for such a big impact!




Here's the Before Meets After




Thanks to Scotch Blue for providing me with product to complete this project and for providing Little Man entertainment!

The last was no hasty reply t http://www.cowan-group.co.uk/ General Motors. Packard conceived the Caribbean around the time Cadillac first thought of Eldorado (1951), and for much louis vuitton replica the same reasons: a more youthful image and extra publicity. (Chrysler was similarly moved to release the C-300 in 1955, though it was far more sporting than any of these.) But whereas gucci outlet the GM cars were in-house designs issued mainly to gauge public response to forthcoming features like the wraparound fendi outlet windshield, the 1953 Caribbean had little that was really new.
