ONE ROOM CHALLENGE | WEEK 6: CLOSET, TRIM, & SHELVES
How, just HOW, are there only two weeks left before the final reveals?! Click thelink to catch up on all of the participant’s projects and progress!
I started by setting up the laser level to get my first strip of tape level. Then, to make sure all of the stripes would be the same size, I ripped small pieces and staggered them against the full strip to make sure each new piece was aligned.
THEN came the magical (yet tedious) paint trick that every DIY blogger and their mom talk about. If you’re trying to get really clean, crisp paint lines, you must first paint over the tape using the same same base color first. This will ensure that if there is any bleeding (which there inevitably will be) that the BASE color is what bleeds through.
I mean LOOK at those lines! They’re so crisp and I hardly had ANY touchups to do.
