How do I keep the paint from rubbing off of my cabinets?
I painted my cabinets yellow but after awhile the paint rubbed off do you have any suggestions.
If your pait is bleeding thru you are using to much paint on your brush. And to get the paint off your cabinet's if it's water base wet a rag and use did liquid it works for me. But if it's oil I use a little bit of asatone paint remover.
the issue is the texture on the wall, the tape can't get a good seal. the paint on the cabinets might just pop off with a flat razor blade.
With woodwork and edging and trim Julie, I have found it best to not trust painters tape at all but instead pry up the woodwork slightly before you paint.
You pry it out only enough that any bleed will be behind the woodwork after you pound the woodwork back in place by protecting it from Markings with a Thick Dishcloth around a Sponge.
Anyway, in event you do not, usually Lestoil or Mr. Clean or even All Laundry Detergent when nondiluted will assist breaking down thin coats of paint.
My name is Linda and I once read an article where the creator used painter's tape but also ran a thin line of paint over the edge of the tape to hold it in place. Of course, that's after pressing down the painter's tape. One thing to be careful of is stretching the tape as you apply it because it can form wrinkles & bubbles as it comes back into shape. Here's another article with several steps to follow that should help you. Wishing you the best.
frog tape...it has a compound in it that when wetness touches from paint it forms a barrier
First that's the minute details that make us crazy but no one else notices. I would try finding something that matched the wood stain, marker, wax filler, patch material and try that to fix the little overlap. With the rough wall surface and what looks like a very narrow lip I think you'll be going round and round. Trying to sand and stain will get on the wall, then you'll repaint. If the lip is what is bothering you I would get a very small brush and paint it the wall color. Right now there are two colors peeking out it makes it more distracting. I've very carefully cut in new paint around door frames only to notice the old wall color on the frame edges looking more pronounced. I just painted over them in the past. Now I'm going to look for ways to make the edges look more like the wood tone, if I can. Just remember, unless you're painting for a client most people won't notice or if they do, won't care that the frames in your house have bits of paint seepage.
