Oh No!!

Oh yes, the paint is peeling off my walls.

I taped around all the trims with blue painters tape.

I painted them. I peeled the tape off and...

I don't know what I did wrong, but it's fairly obvious that this isn't meant to happen! I was told perhaps I let the paint dry too much, but apparently it would normally be the white that would suffer damage in that case. (As in the paint you just painted, and not the paint under the tape.)

The patch around the bedroom door is definitely the worst. It's nothing a bit more paint won't cover up. I would be much happier if I didn't need to be doing it again, but, at least now I have a goal for the day!

Any tips on how to not have this happen again?

Wow, I said the word 'paint' or variations of it a lot in this post!


  1. Oh no - how annoying for you! I hope you manage to get it sorted soon, and that the paint takes to the bits that have peeled off. Don't have any ideas for you sorry, just sympathy and hope that it doesn't happen again!

  2. Aww thanks- it is all fixed and looks fine. DIY and little hiccups like this seem to go hand in hand, don't they!
