Recently I was contacted by Frog Tape® and was asked to try out their FrogTape Textured Surface. I have a whole house-full of textured walls, so my brain went into overdrive with all the things I could do with this new product…that is..if it was easy to use and actually worked!
Well, let me tell you, it is BOTH. It is so easy to use that I may have done my project the day after reconstruction surgery. (shhh..don’t tell my Mom or I will get scolded.)
The product worked beautifully and I am giddy excited about what I will be able to do with it.
I decided to paint a strip of chalkboard paint in Avery’s room. She is my little artist and is constantly creating in her room. Being able to create on the wall adds another element of outlet for that art brain of hers.
The process was simple:
~I used my level iphone app to draw 2 straight lines across the wall. I literally used the edge of the phone as my stencil and worked my way across the wall. So easy!
~I then taped the lines off using Frog Tape®. My Mother-in-Law helped me reach the top line as I am not supposed to have my arms above shoulder height for a week.
~Frog Tape® for textured surfaces has very clear and easy instructions. After taping off, you simply wipe the line of tape with a damp cloth.
~Then unscrew the lid to the Liquid Paint Lock and add the brush lid provided in the kit. Give it a shake.
~Wait 15 minutes & the proceed with paint!
I used 2 coats of chalkboard paint. My project was done in less than 45 minutes and that included drying time.
When I peeled the Frog Tape® off, I was astounded at how straight the line was and there was not one area of paint bleeding through the tape. It worked perfectly!
My little artist loved her new chalkboard wall. She is so eager to use it, but the chalkboard paint has to cure for 3 days before she can put any chalk on it. I think it looks so cute right above her hanging art wire, and it sure cheers this long wall up!
My girl has been talking about all the things she can use her new chalk wall for. My favorite idea of hers? A weekly Bible verse written to remind her of the truth of God’s Word. THAT, my friends, makes this a priceless wall!
