Product Review - Scotch Blue Painters Tape

I recently turned an extra bedroom we have into an office, a process I will be writing about in a couple days.  As part of the makeover I painted the walls a new color, meaning I had to use some painters tape in order to keep the paint from going where I didn't want it to go.


I enjoy the end result of a freshly painted room, it always looks so fresh and clean.  The part that I don't enjoy is taping off all the edges of the room, mainly because it is so time consuming.  So I figure if I am going to take a lot of time taping, then I want to make sure that the effort was worth it, and Scotch Blue Painter's Tape with Edge Lock is the product that I have found that makes sure my time wasn't wasted.

I taped off the ceiling and around the door frame and baseboards.


I also added a smaller piece of tape on the adjacent wall to show how the tape can protect the paint from getting through.


The tape is easy to tear to whatever length you need.  I usually use pieces between 12-18 inches in length, making sure to overlap them so when you pull the tape off, it will come off in one long string.

I used a brush to paint around the edges where I had taped.  The tape comes in various widths, the one I used was 1.5 inches wide.  I like using the rolls that are wider because it gives you more room for user error when you are painting, I always seem to have an errant brush stroke or two.


I also made sure to paint over the piece of tape I put on the adjacent wall.


After I finished with the entire wall, two coats in all, I pulled the tape off.  I put the two coats on in one day and removed the tape the next, it came off just fine, peeling right off the wall.  The tape kept the paint where it was supposed to go, and the edge lock made sure that there was no seepage.


Here is a close up of where I had put the tape on the adjacent wall.


I have always used Scotch Blue Painter's Tape when painting and will continue to do so in the future, using it makes sure that the time I spend taping is not wasted.  Keep it in mind the next time you take brush or roller in hand to change the look of your house.

Thanks for reading.
