This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape. All opinions are 100% mine.

I can’t believe we’ve lived here almost 10 months and I still didn’t have anything on the walls in the kid’s bathroom. I’m sure they really don’t mind but I have an issue with blank walls, plus since we’re renting wall art is an easy way to add color to the room. White walls, white tile, glass shower door, and a huge mirror doesn’t leave much space to add color. It was time to go bold!

It was easy to come up with 3 fun pieces of art for a minimal cost using scrap wood, paint from another projects, FrogTape® Shape Tape™, and vinyl.

I started by painting the 3 pieces of wood using 2 coats of white paint. After letting them dry for a day it was time to add the color.

It would be impossible for me to make these shapes without the awesome FrogTape’s Shape Tape and it’s so easy to use. The guide marks on the front of the tape are so helpful. The slit liner on the back of the tape makes it easy to apply by removing one half of the liner, positioning the tape and then removing the other half. You can create the pattern you want by varying the widths, reversing, or staggering the tape to make your own unique designs.

Shape Tape™ comes in 3 different designs: scallop, wave, and chevron. I’m working with the wave and scallop tape for this project, you know, for that coastal feel. We don’t live by the ocean but I like to pretend and decorate like I do.

I applied 2 coats of Ultramarine. I love this bright color and it’s pretty perfect for that sunshine and coastal feel. I let it dry about 10 minutes then peeled the tape off. Do you love a crisp clean paint line as much as I do? There wasn’t any bleed through anywhere, even where the knots were. That is some incredible Paint Block technology! It’s so fun peeling off the tape for the big reveal.

TaDa! I love how they turned out but I still needed to do a bit more to them before they were ready to hang.

I distressed the edges a little using medium grit sandpaper. I decided not to distress the top for this project, but that would look really great and it’s a good idea for my next project.

I used a personal cutting machine to cut an anchor, sea star, and fish out of vinyl. You could actually cut them out by hand because they’re such a simple shapes.

Once the paint was dry I applied the vinyl to the front of each piece of painted wood.

I love the color the pieces add to the bathroom and now it’s motivated me to finish the rest of it. One room at a time, right?

Shape Tape™ is available at participating Lowe’s and WalMart locations, and all Menards stores across the United States.

I would use it for my kitchen wall that needs a little something extra.

Barb Leffeler June 20, 2014 at 7:52 am

I would use it on the sides of my craft cabinets in my craft room. They are plain white and this would make a great impact.

Hydrangeas and Harmony June 20, 2014 at 8:32 am

Ooh, that’s really cool. No more hand-drawing or trying to find the right size stencil. I think my first project would be some new art for my daughter’s room. She’s almost ready for her ‘teen room’ makeover.

OrganizedMagnolia June 20, 2014 at 9:43 am

I would use it for the decorations in my dining room or to paint a dresser. Wouldn’t those patterns look fun on a dresser?

Two projects actually. First would be your idea for the bathroom – that would be perfect. Then she is a children’s librarian and that frog tape could be used for summer reading projects.

Oh the possibilities! I have been looking and wanting to buy some for a while now! I want to use it mainly to make a sign for my kitchen – also would like to try and to a no-sew pillow cover using it – also would like to try and stencil with it on some mason jars for my daughter’s upcoming birthday party :) thanks!

Thanks for introducing me to this product. As a crafter I have a zillion ideas, but I think enhancing stencils
that need something more would be a good place to start.

I love Shape Tape! I own the Chevron, but, I want the scallops like you had!!! I would use it on my daughter’s plain dresser to jazz it up!

I am painting a lot of old, dark stained pieces of furniture & would love to use the shape tape to give some of the pieces a bit of design other that having everything just solid colors. I had never heard of this tape before. Thanks for sharing!
