The apartment has not been painted in over 20 years, which meant it was long over due. The walls were dingy with dark marks, scraps, and it had faded. I thought one day I will paint, when I could afford it. That day came, a friend gifted me about 8 cans of paint. No excuses, I can paint.
I decided to create a mural on the front closet. I taped off the design and began to paint. At first I used the blue tape, it looks so easy on Design Star, NOOOOOOOT. It still bled. I got the Frog Tape, which was better, but not perfect.
On the train one day I see a painter and asked him, "How do I stop the bleeding." He says "No matter what you just have to correct it with a small brush."
As I painted shapes and peeled tape, I had a new found respect for street artists. I worked late at night and it was tedious, but in the end it was gratifying.
