Now, onto my project that I used Scotch Blue painters tape on. I wanted to do a big project, but unfortunately didn't have time. But, small projects are what most of us are able to tackle today, so thought I'd give some inspiration with a small side table. Here it is all boring and ugly.

The first step I took towards completing this project was to paint the piece my favorite buttercream color.

Next I took Scotch Blue tape and "striped" the top. I did not measure out lines like I would have had I been painting a large wall because I knew I wanted this piece to be imperfect and shabby. So I applied the tape by eye only.

Next, for the striping, I chose a gray paint. I wanted this piece to have a beachy cottage appeal. I applied two coats of paint.

I peeled the tape off while the second coat was still wet. I was so impressed with the fact that there was absolutely no bleed through under the tape.

Once completely dry, I distressed the piece with my palm sander. I was so pleased with the outcome.

Now onto the giveaway. Win your own Scotch Blue tape and create your own fabulous pieces. It's as easy as leaving a comment letting me know how you would use ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape for your own project for a chance to win a sample. For an additional entry you can follow Scotch Blue on their FACEBOOK page. And lastly for a third chance, let me know that you tweeted "@scotchbluebrand I want #supersharppaintlines for my next project!”.

The giveaway will run from October 18th-October 21st.....

Good luck!!!

  14. I would love to try and do something similar with stripes. I also use my palmsander to distress sometimes ;-)

  15. I actually like the look of it with the blue tape on. I know that's only suppose to help you with your painting but for me that's a lazy man's way of making it pretty.
