For the Love of Gaffers Tape

This project has been simmering for about 6 weeks now. I am still contemplating the colors and layout.


This is the little closet with the yellow door that is under the staircase on the main floor. I also plan to stripe the ceiling. Yes, I'm striping the whole thing, it's going to be crazy, which is ok because it's only a closet.

I'm using real gaffers tape. I found a good relatively cheap source on line. It's really nice to work with because it is cloth and you can rework it and move the strips around. It is not at all plastic-y like duct tape. I'm thinking I should add some red or kelly green and possibly nix the royal blue (it looks like painters tape).

Any thoughts?

Adding red in might make it too primary colours. too juvenile maybe? Do you have a favorite rug? Go steal that colour combo. also, what about plaid? or is that too bonkers. add in a few horizontals and dip over under? it's gonna be smashing baby!!!

So glad you brought up the primary colors thing because you're right it could go gymboree pretty quickly which would be horrible. Hadn't thought of that. I feel it needs a little pop beyond the yellow though, got to go see what other colors are available.

Hi! What about a sea foam color? Red is always fabulous in my opinion, but maybe not with the mauve? Love this idea! I may have to try it somewhere too!!

that teal color is great. where did you happen to get the tape? my friend and I were going to do some stripes on the wall in her room and that would be the perfect color.
