I’m beyond excited to share my experience with chevron FrogTape® Shape Tape™. The new painters tape comes in Chevron, Wave, and Scallop.

Shape Tape™ is treated with patented PaintBlock® Technology, a super absorbent polymer that reacts with the water in latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, which helps prevent paint bleed.

Basically you just need to know that it works!

I was skeptical that this tape would work. I’ve had some bad experiences with painters tape in the past. But I didn’t even have a speck of paint bleed through.

A growth chart has been on my to-do list since my oldest son was born. He is now 5. Not sure why it took me so long since this project is super simple.

I used a 6 foot board and cut 1 foot off the end. You could use the whole 6 foot board, but my boys come from a family of very short genes. It’s doubtful we’ll ever need the 6 foot mark.

I stained the board with leftover walnut stain I had. And marked every foot with a pen.

The tape has a paper backing that easily peels off.chevron growth chartjpg zps800eb772 Chevron Growth Chart

At each foot marking I used 4 pieces of chevron tape to create a chunky chevron line.

Gave the entire board a quick sanding for a slightly distressed look.growth chart markingsjpg zps407a3458 Chevron Growth Chart

I marked the inch markings with a sharpie. And then painted over those markings with black paint. And used a stencil to paint on the numbers.how to hang growth chartjpg zps415efeb2 Chevron Growth Chart

To hang the board I used two sawtooth hangers, one at the bottom and one at the top of the board.diy wood growth chartjpg zps72ae717f Chevron Growth Chart
