My 3 best ideas for pimping up your home with Washi Masking Tape

Allgemein, Candlesticks, Decor, Geometric Paintings, Paintings, Picture Frames

#1 Painting with Masking Tape

My painting skills are at an average level, but not very advanced. Once I am finishing a work of art, I am hesitating to put it on my wall. The results simply do not meet my expectations and satisfy me. Then I found an easy technique to paint beautiful pictures without tremendous creativity or very good painting skills: Masking tape really helps you to get perfect paintings that can be adapted easily to fit your interior.

#2 Decorate objects/walls with Masking Tape

I easily get bored of my interior design. There are for example this white picture frames that are just inexpressive. As you might know, I love to redecorate my interior on a frequent basis. So for me Masking tape is the perfect tool to stimulate my creativity: The good thing about it is, that you can easily remove it. You can try as many things as you want until you get your perfect results. Especially on the wall this is a major advantage.

#3 Stripe up your life with Masking tape

I also use Masking tape to draw clear lines. It is the same principle that I am using for pictures. But it can be extended to different objects at your home. I tried it with candle sticks, clothespins and herb pots. I really love the simplicity of the design. So stripe up your home with Masking tape.
