A textured wall with text on it.

My husband was off for a whole week- you know what that means- PROJECTS! Ā  He painted three rooms for me around the house:

1- Our oldest son’s bedroom (white to blue)

2- Our youngest son’s bedroom (white to a different color blue)

3- The ‘kid’ bathroom (again… white to blue. Ā I love blue – they remind me of the ocean!)

The problem was that the bathroom that is closest to their room had a textured finish, so he really put off painting it, imagining the hassle that it would be. Ā He kept telling me that it was might look bad (he is a perfectionist when it comes to painting) or that it would be too hard to do, so I did a little investigating and came across FrogTape Textured Surface. Ā It is treated with the patented PaintBlockā„¢ 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 PaintBlockĀ® Edge Sealerā„¢ helps deliver super sharp paint lines, even on textured surfaces.

So, we ran to Lowes & picked some up (you can find it here)

Now for the HOW TO:

Another before shot:

To apply the tape, take it and put it where you need it:

A wooden table

Push it down to create a little seal using your hands (like you would any tape)

Now you create that block (it comes in the package):

A white textured wall with red Frog tape at the bottom  and a hand applying sealant around the tape.

That’s all there is to it!

And the “AFTER”… Ā  (Its actually a little lighter, but the camera seemed to darken it a bit)

  1. We are in the plans to do the boys room in a pirates theme and it requires us to tape off certain areas to do it! I am excited to do it and the boys are thrilled!

  2. I want to do some cool effect in the dining room. It’s pretty bland right now and I would love to try something interesting that I haven’t done before. Maybe a chevron effect?
