Chevron Design FrogTape For DIY Projects
I have to admit, I squealed like a little kid when I saw this. As a die hard DIY girl and mom of a trillion kids I love anything that I can do at home for less than store bought. Ok, so the boys don't care about the Chevron pattern, but I do so that's all that matters!
When finding this groovy tape the first thing I thought was "The Walls" but no...this won't do that classic Chevron wall because the pattern is too small. However you use it just as a line to switch colors or stripes...that would look awesome. FYI You'll need an enormous amount to do a wall. However this is the perfect thing for smaller projects like, table tops, cutting boards, memo boards, lamp shades... even Halloween pumpkins! Don't laugh, I am totally doing a chevron pumpkin this year.
On a small scale this is very easy to work with, however it's not like regular tape it has a backing that you peal off. I found that it does really well with blocking the bleed thru, I was really impressed. If you are doing a wall I would have a friend help with the taping.
This also comes in a wave pattern & a scallop...I've gotten them all & have been mixing things up. This is definitely one of those products that you go crazy with and think outside the box. We'll be painting on of the kids dressers soon & adding the Chevron up the sides in the recesses. It's just a simple touch that will make the dresser feel custom., Then I'll be adding a few lines around the bunk bed legs to make it all match. The whole thing should only use about 3 rolls of tape & for the end result it will be totally worth it.
