Getting Froggy With It
Consider me officially tooting the horn of Frog Tape. I am the conductor on the Froggy Train people. I am the Jane to their loin-cloth-wearing-vine-swinging-Tarzanian-painter-tape-skills. I am the tuba player in the Frog Tape band.
Ever since they came out with their green painters tape, I have been a fan. I used it ever since our old house (here is an oldie about us using it during our crown molding installation) and will continue to use it until my fingers turn green and fall off. I. love. it. So it made perfect sense for me to join the team of other clean-painters-line-admiring bloggers to bring to you FrogTape sponsored projects. It goes without saying that I will be tackling things that I would have done anyway with the help of my favorite tape…just wanted to throw that out there.
When I found out who was on the FrogTape Blog Squad, it confirmed in my mind that this was a team I would be proud of. Some of these bloggers are old friends…some new…but we are all kindred in the fact that we all have high standards about perfect paint lines. I am very very honored to introduce to you these fine folks…please share the love with them and tell em I sent ya with full permission to give em inappropriate public displays of affection

And because I didn’t want this to be just a post about my new venture…I thought I’d share with ya a little office storage project I did. Supplies were Frog Tape and an Xacto knife (we call these scalpels in our house…we may watch too many ER related tv shows).
I found this tin at the thrift store…it was half off day so I got it for a whopping twenty five cents. plus tax mind you. which makes it like 27 big ole shiny ones. Anyhoo. I loved the simple blue green color and the fact that it was relatively clean. Can’t beat a clean tin with a stick.
You could but then you would be wasting twenty seven cents.
I thought at first that I would paint some bright red stripes on it. Then I got to thinking about how it might be cute with a pattern…a la hole punched painters tape making it more interesting. Then I decided to do a chevron pattern.
Finally, I just said heck…put the tape on it and decide later.
Low and behold I kinda love just the stripes in green. Maybe because it goes well with the green bookshelf….maybe because it is super happy and vibrant….maybe because it reminds me of the washi tape that is oh-so-popular with crafters right now…or maybe it’s because it’s totally non-commital. Whatever the reason, it struck me as finished and I love it as is.
So basically this is like painters tape crafting without the paint.
Inside I keep Will’s markers. I just stocked up from all the back-to-school sales. Gotta love a fresh set of Crayolas in fun shades like tangerine.
So am I nuts? Is colored tape not as cool to you as it is to me? Because I sometimes question the coolness of things I do…it’s my inner homeschooler coming out…just gotta make sure that tape on a tin is not gonna push me into the weird zone. As if this past post didn’t already do that. Ever use painters tape just as is?
p.s. I didn’t realize but Frog Tape has a Blog Squad page – go check out some of the other projects done by my fellow bloggers!
