better than duct tape

My new favorite adhesive is blue painter's tape. I didn't even know this stuff existed until four days ago. Since I'm prohibited from painting, my job is to put the tape up, stay far far away, and take the tape down the next day.

So far, so good. At least the guest room will be painted now before my mother-in-law comes to visit. The rest of the house is a lovely shade of primer-white, and it can stay that way for a while longer.

YOu should paint your walls painters' tape blue. That way, if you miss a piece, you won't know.

My kids are crazy about duct tape. I'm sure they would love this stuff if I bought it for them! Did you know that duct tape comes in all different colors? Among many other things, my daughter made a purse with it.
