The Secret Tool I Used To Get A Clear Bold Line On My Wall

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

The other day I was sitting in my living room wondering what I can do to make this room look different from the kitchen, which is attached and all open space.   I want to change up the colors so that the kitchen is more of a neutral color and then a brighter color in the living room. They share a wall so how will I do this? How do I make this transition?

So my husband says let’s paint the rooms different colors.  Each room has specified functions, so I want the paint colors to reflect that as well. We decided to paint a CLEAR BOLD line that separates the two rooms.  Then the question is how do we do that?  My husband knew exactly what we needed and went to get the FrogTape®.

The Secret Tool I Used To Get A Clear Bold Line On My Wall

My husband uses FrogTape® brand painter’s tapes for all our household painting jobs because it is treated with 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. He says he wants to do it only once and FrogTape prevents the color to bleed and no need for touch-ups. The results are always crisp; clean paint lines the first time you put it up.   Saves a lot of time, no redo’s necessary with this tape! The edges of the tape ensure that the tape is properly bonded to the surface resulting in sharp paint lines.

How we got our CLEAR BOLD LINE:

  1. Clean the surface and let it dry.
  2. Tear off sections of the tape that are needed for the line, but never longer than your arm.  Easier to place on the wall that way.The Secret Tool I Used To Get A Clear Bold Line On My Wall
  3. Make sure the tape is straight and secure.  Press firmly but don’t stretch the tape. 
  4. Remove all air bubbles; we use a credit card or putty knife just to slide down to make sure all secure.
  5. Paint and let dry.
  6. When all dry then you can remove the tape with a little speed, pull the tape back and bam there is my STRAIGHT BOLD LINE! 

Now I have two separate rooms with a clear bold line to distinguish between the rooms. We repainted the wall all in one day and let me tell you I love it but we couldn’t have done it without FrogTape!  The Secret Tool I Used To Get A Clear Bold Line On My Wall

I love the idea of using strips like this to separate paint areas. I recently had a paint job done in my home and the the painters used strips too.

NICE! My kitchen and dining room kind of merge together. I was wondering if there was a way I could define each space without painting it all the same color - I think this would work!

What a nice fine hack. Could be useful for me as we are planning to renovate our house very soon. Amazing!
