Laundry Room & A Giveaway!!


I have just a few more projects I am working on for my laundry room but I wanted to show you guys where I'm at now!


So... After priming and painting my cabinets I let everything dry overnight and used my ScotchBlue Edge Lock tape on them.


ScotchBlue recently sent me some of this awesome tape to get my opinion on it.  Many of you asked if it would work on walls as well.

Here are a few examples of the straight lines I ended up with...




I actually was super impressed with it.  I always have problems with paint bleeding under the tape but not with this stuff!  I love it!

Here's a few more pictures...













So that's it so far guys!  As I mentioned... I do have a few more projects I am working on for the wall to tie in the red just a bit more.  I will also share my how-to's on what I have done so far later this week.  

Who wants to try some of this fab painter's tape??

ScotchBlue is giving 8 more Shanty readers their own roll of

ScotchBlue Edge Lock!!

Whoop!!

All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post and you are entered.  Pretty simple!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I am off to feed the fam!

Who couldn't use more painting tape - ESPECIALLY if it works like THAT!

luvnmy10 said...

that looks like a laundry room from a magazine! Very nice, clean and classic looking. I have a question--if I have wood cabinets that are stained and sealed, what do you recommend for prep work to paint them? My husband says I have to strip and all that, but the primer you used seemed like it would be sufficient if I sanded it. I hope you can help me out.

I would love to try to new painters tape, haven't had much success with non bleeding in the past.

Carla Khouri said...

Whitney, I love everything you do. This laundry room looks so pretty and fresh. What an inspiration. I would love to try the tape. I paint quilt boards for our county in Tennessee and use miles of painters tape, so a new product is of huge interest. Thanks for considering me!
