Last minute fling ... Before and After



Well, I had made my list of projects of what I wanted to accomplish before going back to school, and this was not on the list.

This was one of those projects that got in my head, and I had to do it. Like yesterday.

I will say that it wasn't bad, except for the taping.

Blue tape is called blue painter's tape which I found out was a double negative.

It kept falling until I painted over it and then some of it stuck to the wall. Hello, painter's tape!

I was told later the green tape is better to use. I have never even heard of green tape, but will be using it the next time I try to paint some racing stripes (as my husband calls them!) on my wall.
Here is the before ...




The during ... falling tape!

  2. I LOVE it!! And I've never heard about green tape either, but I'll take that person's advice and try it when we start painting.
