Prep the table by sanding it down. This will allow the paint to adhere to the table.
Place four strips of tape, side-by-side, to the right of your center marks. Then place four more strips of tape, side-by-side, to the left side of your center marks for a total of eight strips.
Measure the length of your table and mark a line across the center of your tape making sure to only mark on your tape and not on the table.
From the center line make four marks, each one measuring 3 1/2 cm. (This is the width of the FrogTape® Delicate Surface. If you are using a different tape you will need to adjust your measurements.) Make four more marks on the left side of your center line. Do the same to the opposite side of the table.
Line up a yard stick with your first set of marks and use a couple clamps to hold the yard stick in place. Using a cutting knife, cut through your tape being careful not to cut too deep into the table. Do the same for the remaining eight lines.
The FrogTape® Delicate Surface™ is perfect for this project because you only have to wait 24 hours between coats before applying the tape. This allowed me to finish the project in less than two days.
FrogTape® is the only painter's tape treated with PaintBlock® Technology. PaintBlock is a super-absorbent polymer which reacts with latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, preventing paint bleed. This makes FrogTape® the best tape ever! It is the perfect tape to use for any of your DIY painting projects!
