After I saw a post on Pieces of Wonderful blog
, where she used some gorgeous Cath Kidston tape to jazz up her belongings, I bought some for myself.
I bought the masking tape on Amazon for £4.15 (free delivery), and the RRP is apparently £7. I know.. £7 for masking tape… jeeeez! I luckily had an e-voucher left over from some online surveys I did a while ago so spent my £4.15 and waited for the tape to arrive!
You get 3 mini rolls of masking tape with different Cath Kidston print designs on. I only really like the floral one, but you also get a green polka dot tape, and one with yellow stars. The packet states that you get 12 meters, but I think you get 4m of each roll.
I decided to spruce up my painted white wooden shelves. I simply pressed the masking tape onto the edge of the shelf, then cut it to length. Done!
I just love the effect it gives.. it looks like it has been finely hand painted in this gorgeous pattern. The tape was just the right width to cover the whole edge. I love it! It looks great for a vintage effect, and it’s so simple to do. I wonder what else I can put it on…
What do you think?
