Do you watch HGTV and admire their perfect paint jobs?
Learning how to paint a wall so that it looks awesome is a savvy skill any homeowner would love.
Great paint jobs are especially noticeable when there are two opposing colors next to each other — like a Halloween orange and earthy neutral.
Hey, wait a minute!!
That’s my dining room and kitchen. But unfortunately my paint lines separating the two rooms are less than perfect.
As a matter of fact, they look downright sloppy joe.
The problem is quite apparent yet the solution is somewhat hazy. Remedying paint transitions between different colored walls can be frustrating at best.
Apparently many of us want a pro looking paint job with crisp lines, including myself . Is there a solution to this problem?
Yes there is my friends!
In today’s session you’ll discover two HUGE tips to get straight paint lines on your walls and have your friends ask how you did it. And yes, HGTV might want some pictures!!
As you can see from the video, my first attempt at straight lines had bad results. It was mostly the white primer that bled through the Frog Tape.
Yet the second go round resulted in perfectly painted lines between the neutral and orange paint. Crisis avoided between me and my wife.
Frankly, I was sweating the entire time and thinking about how I was going to explain my latest painting blunder.
Make sure you share these awesome tips when someone asks you how to paint a wall the right way. Frog Tape and silicone caulk - these are essential painting tools. Just ensure the silicone caulk is clear and paintable.
So, I’d love to know:
