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!
