DIY Plaid Patterned Walls

Materials:

  • FrogTape (0.94inches & 1.88inches)
    • A combination of the delicate (yellow) frog tape and the multi-surface (green) frog tape
  • Base paint color
    • I used Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace
  • Patten paint color
    • I used Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal
  • Laser leveler
  • Tripod
  • 48 inches ruler
  • A mini ruler
  • Pencil
  • Hardboard
  • Plastic spatula
  • Paint roller (microfiber ¾ inches nap)
  • Paint brushes
    • Angled (1 inches, 2 inches)
  • Paint cup holder

Steps:

  1. Prepare your walls. Clean off any dust and dirt. Fill in any nail holes with sparkling and sand down once the sparklings are dried.
  2. Paint your walls with two coats of the base paint color if needed. If you are using the existing paint color, touch up areas with your existing paint color.
  3. Use a scrap piece of hardboard to create your unique plaid pattern using a combination of 0.94 inches of delicate frog tape and 1.88 inches of the multi-surface tape. For lines you want closer together with less than an inch spacing, use the 0.94 inches delicate frog tape.
    For larger spacing between lines, use the 1.88 inch multi-surface frog tape. This frog tape size can also be used to create the thin lines in between the large spacing.
  4. Transfer your pattern to the walls using a laser level or a pencil and ruler vertical direction.
  5. Paint the pattern with the color you selected. Apply the first coat and wait until it’s slightly dry and then put on the second coat.
  6. Start to pull off the frog tape as the paint is wet. Wait until the paint completely dries and start working on your pattern for the horizontal direction. Then, repeat step 5.
  7. Remove all the frog tape, admire your work and style your space as desired!

FrogTape® Brand
Painter's Tape

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.
