Design Trend No. 1
That feeling of new growth. Watching something sprout from the earth can be as invigorating as discovering your own inner growth. Remember that sunshine is the start of a new day.
Basement Living Room Makeover
Cassie is a mother of three, wife, daughter and true friend; a kitchen dancer and hair brush singer, honest writer, collector of pretty things, thrifter extraordinaire, and soul digger. I work to create a home and life filled with purpose, and believe that paint can fix almost anything. With a little creativity and a willingness to work, a beautiful home doesn't have to wait until "one day."
We had so much fun creating this space using Frogtape in a variety of ways. From the drop cloth artwork to protecting our ﬂooring around the ﬁreplace, there was nothing that this tape couldn't help us achieve. The project that had the most impact and used just paint, tape, and a bit of poster board was our arched color block wall, and today I am going to show you just how we put together that design.
Taking into consideration that the walls on either side of our ﬁreplace were not symmetrical, I had to create a design that ﬁt on both. Each wall is especially long, so I also needed a design that would take up a lot of wall space. Using a piece of printer paper and some colored pencils, I sketched up an extremely rough idea of what I wanted. (I am not a designer and don't use graph paper, so don't judge my poor rendering!)
When it came time to implementing I altered the design a little bit to let the ﬁreplace have a little more impact after it was painted. Here is where we ended up.
Now let's talk about how to create this look.
FrogTape® is the only painter's tape treated with PaintBlock Technology. PaintBlock is a super-absorbent polymer which reacts with latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, preventing paint bleed.
