Sometimes, you might find yourself having to protect your painted walls.
But you might not be so sure how to do it.
So when do you have to protect painted walls?
For example, you might be fed up with the colour of one wall, like the wall behind the TV, or you might want to paint one of the children’s room’s walls to blue.
In these instances, you’ll need to protect the adjacent walls that do not need to be painted.
If you apply Sellotape to protect them, it’s easy to accidentally paint over the tapes onto the walls.
A common protective tape is the masking tape. No explanation’s needed, perhaps, we all know to apply masking tape before a paint job. We apply it to sockets and switches, so that no accidental slips will happen.
But this, the coloured tape, or washi tape, is my recommendation.
Compared to masking tapes, when lifting washi tapes after a paint job, both the new and the old coatings are less likely to be peeled off.
If you use masking tapes, paint might be peeled off along with the tapes.
Protecting your painted walls is just that simple. Even if you are using washi paper, after the paint job, don’t wait until the paint is all dried before you peel the tapes.
See you next time, bye!
