Hey friends! Today I’m sharing the continuation post of my “built in bookshelf” to show you how to get those pretty shimmery dew drop shapes on the back side. It was pretty easy to do thanks in large part to FrogTape® Shape Tape™ which I got in the “wave” pattern. Here’s how to do it…
My built in started has an arch so it made it a tad more challenging to get clean lines and cuts. I found the easiest way was to use regular tape to tape the Shape Tape™ up first and then use an exacto knife to make the cuts.
I used almost all of 2 rolls for this space, which is roughly about 6 ft tall by 3 ft wide. Once I had all of my pieces cut to size and in the correct spots I went back and peeled the backing off of the Shape Tape™ and stuck it directly to the wall, smoothing with my hands as I went. I’ve been familliar with FrogTape® for a while now. It’s the only tape I use when painting because of its PaintBlock® Technology. It works great for ensuring clean lines every time with very minimal bleeding, so I knew the Shape Tape™ would work just as well.
Once all the Shape Tape™ was up on the wall and smoothed out, I had my husband slap on some silver glaze. I didn’t want a paint because I wanted it to be somewhat sheer, and have a reflection to it when the light hit a certain way.
Once all the dew drops were painted we pulled off the tape when it was still wet, just to make sure we wouldn’t have any bleeding through…
I really love the way it turned out. It adds just the right amount of drama to an otherwise boring and once useless space. Now when I open the door to our master bedroom I’m greeted with this.
