Frogtape Paint Perfect Lines On Wall (2)

We do a lot of work in our office and after moving form Oregon to California we are just now starting to feel at home. The one room in the house that has gotten no attention is our home office. Feeling uninspired I have been wanting to remake the space for quite some time.

To make the job simple and easy we used the new FrogTape® Textured Surface. It is treated with the patented PaintBlock™ Technology, a super absorbent polymer that reacts with the water in latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, which helps prevent paint bleed. The Liquid PaintBlock® Edge Sealer™ helps deliver super sharp paint lines, even on textured surfaces.

To put the tape to the test my husband created the stripes on the wall. We removed the boring shelf and bulletin board.

One the tape is on you will wipe the edges with a damp cloth and then  apply the edge seal gel. All the gel to dry then paint.

Once the paint is dry you can remove the tape from the wall.

After the paint was dry we put the newly painted shelf back on the wall. I just sanded it down and used the same paint form the wall.

I really like how simple and easy to use the Textured Surface by FrogTape was. Easy enough for begginers like ourselves to do!

I added a new calendar and some artwork I found at one of those discount home stores. It’s such an easy way to update the look of any room and I just love how simple and yet how bright it makes the entire room!

    I never heard of that tape but I love the makeover. I like the color combo with the stripes. Now I want to makeover my office and give it some color!

    I love that! Glad it’s made for textured walls, I hate when the paint bleeds!

    Now that is creative genius right there! I want to do something like this in our hallway to give it some oomph.

    Okay that may have been a simple job, but it looks anything but simple… It looks amazing… I love, love, love it.

    I love how it turned out! I used Frog Tape to make a UGA themed room, with red and black stripes, for my son.



  15. Stefany on August 20, 2014 at 1:34 pm

    That looks great! I love the pops of color now. It seems so easy too.

    I am thrilled to see Frog tape comes in a textured wall formula. I am currently moving and will be decorating very soon.

    I love how simple and elegant that looks!! What a great way to add some color to a room!



  22. Kelsey Apley on August 20, 2014 at 10:11 am

    Now that is neat! I had no idea about applying that to give clean edges! Your mini makeover looks great!!!!



  23. Jenna Wood on August 20, 2014 at 9:13 am

    Wow! Look at those crisp fresh edges. That Chevron print really dresses the decor up without causing a complete overhaul or timely paint job. This is a very cool frog tape system!

    What a great idea. I love those two colors together. I’m working on my little office nook and would love to do something like this.



  25. Amber Edwards on August 20, 2014 at 7:11 am

    Oh that really spiced up the room! It looks fabulous! I have some paint jobs to get done; so I need to look for that tape!



  26. Carlee C on August 20, 2014 at 5:23 am
