Now for those painter’s tape tricks. The Glidden You Tube Channel has tons of videos with painting tips and tricks. I really enjoyed this one for using painter’s tape. It is short and sweet but I believe it is VERY helpful.
Awesome right? Removing the tape while the paint is still wet and that angle she suggests are life savers. My tape of choice for projects like these is Frog Tape. And yep I press mine down just like Lindsay suggests in the video. Did you miss that tip? Be sure to go back and watch.
I started my project with the mirror in place. I actually used my level and made the mirror frame the width of the level. So just put the level firmly onto the mirror and drew a line down the side of the level.
I did that on all four sides then added painter’s tape (just like the video suggested) around each pencil mark. I then removed the mirror (those clips are still in place I just loosened them).
I painted two coats of paint on each frame removing the painter’s tape after each coat while the paint was still wet. Remember you need to do that from the video above.
I then just added my mirrors back into place and secured them with the clips. So much better than before y’all. Plus you can look into those mirrors and get a *small* sneak peek into the room. You will have to stay tuned until next week to see the entire thing.
PPG also runs the My Colortopia website where you can get advice, upload pictures of your room, and in general see your favorite bloggers and their painting tips.
