Doing this house renovation has led me to many great products to try out and one of them is Frogtape. I started seeing these green rolls of tape around the home improvement stores and unless you are working on projects all the time, might not have the need to use them all that much. But, since I’m in the middle of a ton of home renovation projects, I’ve got the perfect opportunity to try out this green tape for myself.
Frogtape was a sponsor at Haven as well and gave out many samples for the attendees and I’ve received my own generous supply to use in my house. There are several different sizes of Frogtape, from 1” to 3 “ and all of them are useful.
You can easily spot Frogtape from the bright green packaging and the neat thing about Frogtape is the Paint Block edges that seal when painted. Once you paint over the Frogtape, as long as it’s sealed nice and tight to begin with, your paint won’t seep underneath.
I’ve had several occasions to use it in my fixer-upper house, from taping off windows that I don’t want paint on, to lots of other useful ways.
When we were working on trimming out the kitchen windows, I taped around the glass to keep my paint from getting on the glass.
In the dining room, once my walls were painted, I taped off around the woodwork, to keep that white trim paint off my nicely painted gray walls.
Frogtape works like a charm for masking off areas that you don’t want painted.
Again, in the foyer when working on the board and batten and painting all of that, I taped off the top edges when we were cutting in the wall color. It’s so nice to look back at all of these pics and see how far the house has come! Lots of hard work has been put into this house, but praise the Lord, we are getting closer to the finish line.
One more thing that I found useful for Frogtape was taping off the mirror that was in my vanity area. I am putting my antique vanity in this space and it has a mirror attached, so taking down that old mirror was necessary. The plumber will come back and cap off those plumbing lines that went to the old sink and my new space will feel so cozy.
I did a really dumb thing and took this mirror down by myself. I did tape it off first and got up on a stepstool and pried with a small crowbar until the mastic gave way that was holding the mirror up. Luckily, that black pipe was below and helped to catch it and it didn’t crash to the ground.
I was able to move it out and to the floor all in one piece. I taped it just in case it decided to break and luckily, no mishap happened. I know, I don’t need to be doing this stuff by myself. My dad was in the mountains and I was trying to get some things done.
I’m happy to say that I’m going to be part of the Frogtape Blog Squad for the next year. They will be supplying me with all the Frogtape I can use and I’ll be doing all sorts of projects with it.
In fact, I have a really fun one planned for my master bedroom. I found a paint treatment that I can’t wait to try and it requires taping lines. Of course, I’ll share the step by step with you all!
Note: This is a sponsored post by Frogtape, but all opinions and ideas are my own. They gave us tape to use and told us to be creative and do what we want to do with it, so I’ll be using it over the next year for all sorts of fun projects. We are compensated for our time by being part of the Frogtape Blog Squad.
