Casa Quickie: Seal Your Stripes

If you were inspired by my black and white stripe powder room makeover or my painted stripes roundup, I have another tip for you before you bite the bullet. First of all, I'd recommend picking up Frog Tape for your project. As you can see, Frog Tape was a godsend when it came to leaving my walls free of bleeding paint. But since it wasn't 100 percent foolproof, check out this tip from CasaSugar Community member steen: "Once you tape off your sections, paint around the edges of the tape using paint that matches your base wall color; it seals the tape and ensures that your new color won't leak." I haven't tested this one out myself, but it makes sense! And, the trick should work any time you're taping, not just for stripes. Let us know if you try it!
