I learned a lesson last week, and thought I’d share, just in case I’m not the only one who didn’t already know this. [Insert hand hitting forehead.] Remember how I was going to be painting some stripes? Yes, well, that plan failed. You see, I discovered that winter is not a great time to paint, even inside! Who knew?! The paint bubbled! INSIDE! Granted, I didn’t think about turning on the baseboard heater in Cole’s room before I started, and it was snowing outside, but I really didn’t think the walls would be THAT cold. Apparently I was wrong. So, I only got as far as the white stripes, and there are some areas that I’ll be sanding and repainting once the weather warms up. Lesson learned.
Since I now have some extra time before the stripes happen, I thought that I’d poll you all to find out what painters tape you use? I probably should have chosen less contrast for my first set of stripes! I really don’t want to have navy blue paint seeping under the tape and onto the white… so please let me know if you have a personal favourite!
PS – I realize that this picture has nothing to do with painting, or stripes, but no one needs to see bubbled paint drying. Instead, I thought I’d share a pic of the stool and bird that I just found at Target. I’m loving them!
