COLETTE M. | FROGTAPE KITCHEN MAKEOVER


Project Description:

I used Frogtape to paint a cheerful faux tile backsplash in my kitchen. It was super-cheap and adds so much character to a normally boring space! Since all I used was one and a half rolls of frogtape and some $4 paint samples, the whole project cost me less than $40 and totally transformed my kitchen. Most people can't believe until they get up close that it's not real tile! After the backsplash I got inspired by the fun colors and decided to make some chevron "clipboard frames" to hang above the giant chalkboard calendar (that I also made). Those were so easy too! I just stained a 12x12 piece of pine, painted the chevron design using frogtape's chevron shapetape, the added a bulldog clip so I can easily change out photos! All rooms in my house have at least one project that frogtape was involved, but my kitchen makeover is my favorite!

ELIZABETH MARIA F. | BEDROOM WALL


Project Description:

The geometric pattern on this project called for very hard edges and a tape that could offer just that. Frog Tape prevented paint leaks and stayed put until the very end of the project. I am very happy with the result.

JUDY T. | THE ELEGANT DINING ROOM


Project Description:

I have always wanted a black dining room and this was the perfect time for me to finally tackle that. I decided to turn a dark, dreary room into a beautiful, elegant dining space that I could dress up or down. I started by painting all of the woodwork, including French doors, white and the lower wall portion a matte black. I wanted one wall to be more dramatic so I measured and divided it into 7" stripes. After double checking with the level, I then proceeded to create perfect stripes with my Frog Tape. I then painted the inside edge with the white wall paint to prevent any bleeding and then painted inside the stripes with the black paint. I decided to complete the look by also painting a plain white table with a similar striped look. I used the same process of measuring and taping and then spray paint with black. The moment of truth finally came and I discovered I had no bleeding whatsoever and nothing to redo! The black created a perfect backdrop for using any color I desire in the future and I would tell anyone never to be afraid to use it. Now I have the Elegant Dining Room of my dreams and....I will always use Frog Tape for any future projects.
