People ask me all the time how I am able to paint perfect lines. It is a huge pet peeve of mine when I see lines that are not properly painted. In fact we were just at dinner with my in laws this weekend and I noticed a red wall that had a messy line that matched up to a yellow wall. Made me crazy and, of course, once I noticed it I couldn’t un-notice it!!!
Step 1: Tape. Take time and tape well because it does make a difference.
Step 5: Remove the tape. I used to wait until the top layer of paint was dry but a reader told me you get better results if you remove the tape right away. I tried it and it worked! So once you have painted the final color remove the tape while the paint is still wet. Remember to remove the tape at a slight angle for better results!
This is what your perfect line will look like. Isn’t it lovely? No touch up painting here! Who has time for that!? On to my next project!
