Then using Frog Tape--the green stuff is best--perfectly crisp line!--we taped off each section that was to be painted gray. Keep in mind that your tape goes above the pencil line where you want the top of the gray stripe and below the pencil line at the bottom of your gray stripe. Keep those lines straight and try to use one continuous piece of tape if possible. Two people and four hands is helpful! We also used a Pampered Chef pan scraper thingy to make sure our tape had a good seal on the wall. It worked because our lines were beautiful!
And here is the finished product! We all love how the stripe is the perfect backdrop for the "starsby" mirror made by Uncle Mikey Neyman. And the gray is the perfect color to make those red accents "POP!"
