I like shopping at Thrift Stores or Goodwill for items just begging for a coat of paint. I had found the cutest little stool that will act as a plant stand on my patio once the sun decides to stay. ？I was recently asked to do a “；FrogTape how-to”； and？paint something with Frog Tape？ Shape Tape-？. ？I knew the little stool would be my next project!canvas throw pillow covers
I thought something fun and whimsical for my patio using their Wave shape tape would be perfect! All I had to do was pick out my color. The stool was originally an ugly reddish color， so I gave it a fresh coat of white spray paint. I was so excited， I didn’；t realize I forgot to snap a before photo.
The FrogTape？ ？was VERY easy to work with. It didn’；t wrap around and get stuck to any available surface， armpillow shams floral， or clothing. The backing comes off easily in 2 strips and sticks to your item like a dream. FrogTape？ is the only painters tape treated with Paint Block？ technology， which is pretty important. There is nothing worse than taping off an area， only to have paint seep underneath or soak through.
I was happy not to have to worry about that since I’；m not always the most patient to follow directions. It said to press with a rubbing tool， which I did on the first couple of lines…；…；..then I was a rebel and just used my finger with pressure. If I were doing a larger piece of furniture or a wall， I would make myself follow directions. As you can see， I just eyeballed my wavy lines， which was fine since this is supposed to be whimsical. Right？
Paint Block？ is a super absorbent polymer which reacts with latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape to avoid bleeding. We used the regular FrogTape？ while painting our basement and were happy with the results.
It worked great with spray paint and also the acrylic paints I used to add color. Now I have the perfect plant stand that brings a bit of glam to my patio. I’；m thinking of all kinds of projects to create using their shape tape. For more inspiration and tips， follow FrogTape？ on？.？
Just for you， I created a very quick video showing how easy it is to work with.

Homemade. As I’ve been trying to fill these empty walls in not one, but two homes now, I have realized what takes me so long.
