Painting tip....

I have had this brown paint chip taped to the wall above my bed for like 2 years...
Seriously!!

I just could not make up my mind. 
Due to cabin fever or spring fever 
or sheer madness.

I just bought the stinking paint and did it...
I was only doing the wall behind my bed.
Which meant that I needed to tape a line.
I have heard a million things like buy the "Frog tape" and buy the most expensive angled brush...
But I am cheap...
I remembered reading somewhere about taping and then using Mod Podge to help seal it.

So I taped....
(with my cheap tape)

 I Mod Podged down the edge of the tape...

And let it dry....
(and crossed my fingers that it worked)


Painted and waited...
(while my fingers were still crossed) 

And it worked!!

It left a pretty darn straight line...
With only a few tiny spots that may need to be touched up!

And now I am working on a gallery wall for my room, new ruffly "anthro" inspired curtains, and accent pillows!!
