You guys I am so excited to show you a glimpse of my new porch! We closed on our house Friday so we’re starting to do some improvements and we’ll be moving in this week. It’s gonna be nuts. Anyway, I knew that the first thing I wanted to do when we got the keys was decorate the porch. I guess it’s exciting to have a porch of my own, and also I want to make a good impression for my new neighbors! Coincidentally I had just received a sample of new product Shape Tape™- which I had been dying to try! It’s painter’s tape but with a pattern already in it so you can do fun scallop, chevron or wave patterned projects super easily. I really wish I had known about this stuff when I made my scalloped door mat. Anyway, I decided to give it a try on these terracotta flower pots.

The first thing I did was put some tape on the biggest pot, and then I spray painted them all black. Putting the tape on was pretty simple but would have been easier if I hadn’t chosen a pot. A flat surface would have been ideal. Either way though, I was really impressed with its PaintBlock® technology, which in laman’s terms is a technology they use that seals the edges of the tape, preventing paint bleed. It really didn’t leak at all so when I pulled the tape off it had perfect lines! It’s definitely the best painter’s tape I have used. And guys, when you are working hard on a project, there is nothing worse than paint bleed! So this saved me from the frustration I have come to expect from experiences in the past.

Enough gushing though, let’s get down to the nitty gritty.

After spray painting, I traced the Shape Tape™ with a white paint pen, and then ripped off the tape and filled in the scallop outline with white acrylic paint. I wish I would have used the tape to out line the white part I was painting, because doing it freehand I went out of the lines a little. I’m no perfectionist though, so I can move on from it.

For the medium sized pot, I traced the scallop pattern with my white paint pen in three different layers to create this scallop-stripe thing it’s got going on.

I think this one is my favorite. It kinda looks like a doodle on a chalkboard, but heaven knows I can’t freehand for the life of me so I’m thankful I had the scallop tape to guide me! Then for the littlest one I just put some little white polka dots with my paint pen to add some variety in there. I really like all three of them.
