Sometimes good things come out of being lazy. For example, I was trying to get our studio living room ready for its room tour (yay!), but our simple white mirror looked a bit dull against the plain white wall. I thought maybe it could benefit from some stripes, but the idea of pulling out all the paint and taping off the necessary areas sounded like a bit of a chore at the moment. Then I thought, “Hello, washi tape!” and my stripe problem was solved.
Once I wrapped the tape around the back side of the frame, I just used an X-Acto knife to trim the excess on the inside. If you’re worried about the ends pulling up, just use a bit of glue to tack them down for good.
