If you’ve ever spent time taping off walls, a ceiling or a piece of furniture you MUST take a look at this time saving tutorial that will help eliminate those annoying, often inevitble paint bleeds. If you’re anything like me, you tape, level, re-tape and give multiple firm passes on the edge to make sure your painters tape has adhered really well only to discover bleeds! There’s a super easy solution!

Give a light sanding if there’s any unwanted texture on your piece.

Start the taping process.  If you’re working on a delicate surface or a freshly painted surface, the yellow frog tape,works really well.

Don’t forget to run your finger along the edge of your tape to ensure you have a nice seal.

Here’s where the magic happens! In the area you intend on painting, put down a layer of the base color. If you have any bleeds, they will be in the color of your base paint, not your line color!

*QUICK TIP!!! Instead of washing brushes after every use, simply take your brush, lay it down on some plastic wrap and roll it up tightly. When your wall or furniture is ready for a second coat, it’ll be ready to use!

Everyone that toured our house complemented the decor. Our house was warm and bright and I owe the welcoming and offers to Dorrie’s expertise. She was kind in recommending what belongings worked best for staging and made realistic suggestions for purchasing props or minimal repairs and painting. She was accessible for my questions even down to the final hours. I completely recommend Simple Southern Charm for your home decorating and staging.
