Step 1
Protect your trim from drips and splatters with blue painter’s tape. Use your level and pencil to draw a horizontal straight line 42″ up from the floor.

Step 2
Follow your pencil line with the tape.

Step 3
Seal the tape by putting a thin coat of the base coat color along the edge of the blue painter’s tape. This will ensure a perfectly straight line, as any bleed through under the tape will match the existing color and therefore be undetectable!

Step 4
Using the roller, paint Mint Ice Cream 2/3 of the way along the wall. Let dry. Apply a second coat if needed.

Step 5
Create a diagonal line with blue painter’s tape on top of the Mint Ice Cream.

Step 8
Remove the tape! Pro Tip: Pull the tape away from the painted area in order to break the seal cleanly.
