Curvy painters tape! Who knew?

Sadly, the garage sale season in the frozen tundra of Minnesota is quickly coming to an end. Although I'm ready for a break, I will miss the thrill of the hunt...God, I love that....

Anyway, I hit a sale last week that had aaaallll sorts of painters tape. I mean, gobs. Oddly though, it was shaped...zig zags, waves, etc. Did anyone else know this existed? I'd never seen it before....so I scooped up several rolls just in case I liked using it.

This little table had been sitting around since this summer and I'd been so uninspired by it, that I almost gave it back to Goodwill.


But I'm glad I didn't. I used some of the wavy painters tape, and this was the result.





Not sure where I'll put this or if I'll keep it, but I think it's pretty cute!

I love that! I was going to try a chevron pattern on a table top, but this gets you a similar idea for way easier!

Who knew they made tape in patterns. I wonder what its intended use was? Great little table.

Hey Allison! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm a new follower of yours and loved looking at all of your transformations.

The wavy painters tape is awesome! I've never seen it before, but can only imagine how wonderful it would be to paint an entire accent wall with it!
