Painter’s Tape

The hu-dad is painting one of the rooms in our house, so he was applying some painter’s tape yesterday.

great tool

Painter’s tape – a great tool when painting a room.

The purpose of painter’s tape is to line the edge of the area you are painting so that you create a nice, sharp line at the edge.  In other words, it creates a boundary to keep the paint off of things that you don’t want to be colored – and to keep things out of the fresh paint.

Of course, the hu-dad wondered how effective of a barrier it might really be.

will it work?

Do you think it will work?

    hmmm, we think it would take more than that piddly little line of tape to keep Typhoon out of something!

    Mom sez: Looks like you’re trying to teach Typhoon to “toe the line”, and somehow I highly doubt THAT will happen! I can see him “tethered” to the couch while this project is happening!
