Colorful Built-in Work Space

  • White built in book shelf

    Getting Started

    First, if needed, add a few shelves to the built-in area. Then, prime and paint the interior of the built-in.

  • Multiple vertical strips of Green FrogTape Multi-Surface Painter's Tape on a white wall running from ceiling to floor.

    Tape Off

    Next, create a pattern for stripes that would work with the space. Make it your own!

    Then, measure out the space with a pencil. Be sure to mark each stripe with the chosen paint color and tape off with FrogTape® Multi-Surface Painter's Tape.

  • Vertical strips of Green FrogTape Multi-Surface Painter's Tape on a wall with one being pulled off to reveal a crisp white line.


    Now, paint the stripes with the chosen paint colors and peel off the painter's tape once dried for super sharp paint lines.

  • A small white table in a nook, with multiple strips of Green FrogTape Multi-Surface Painter's Tape running vertically across the table top and down the side

    Wrapping Up

    Finally, repeat the steps with a built desk and add décor!
