Happy Monday morning everyone! Hope you’re all bright eyed and bushy tailed! If so, you’ll be thinking about decorating projects like I am, especially painting an old piece of furniture. This is something I do even more since opening Penney & Company!
When I paint a piece I try to be as neat and tidy as possible, but sometimes I miss the mark in some hidden areas. One is the inside of cabinet doors where the paint I’m using meets the wooden interior. A great trick I’ll be using from now on is to use a medium tack painter’s tape (I like 3M’s Scotch Blue Tape) to create a clean defined border. Using a utility knife gets clean edges too instead of tearing.
Just tape off the area where you don’t want paint…
And paint as normal. Your project will of course look great on the outside when you’re done, but you’ll know the inside is nice and neat too! Give it a try!
