Transform your House into a Home with DIY Projects and Inspiration from the FrogTape® 2014 Blog Squad

AVON, OHIO (July, 2014) – The process of personalizing a home means making many decisions: from color schemes and furniture selection, to choosing between contemporary, classic or eclectic styles. When it’s time to make these décor updates, many homeowners want to DIY, but are sometimes unsure of where to begin. To help them get started on their first – or next – project, FrogTape® brand painter’s tape has assembled a team of accomplished DIY bloggers – the FrogTape Blog Squad – that provides paint project inspiration, how-tos and detailed step-by-step instructions.

“Consumers can find endless home design ideas online, especially when it comes to DIY paint projects,” said Kristin Osinski, senior media manager, ShurTech Brands, LLC. “And although it’s easy to find that inspiration, it isn’t always simple to recreate the desired look on your own. The FrogTape Blog Squad provides both the ideas that get homeowners excited to be creative and the necessary resources, like the materials they’ll need and instructions. Plus, our bloggers are avid painters that have varying talents and decorating styles, which will surely appeal to almost any DIYer. We’re excited to see what new and impressive projects they’ll create using FrogTape.”

This year, the FrogTape Blog Squad consists of four DIY bloggers – two of which are new this year – who will share their creativity and expertise with consumers. Their projects will be posted on http://www.FrogTape.com/blogsquad:

  • Knack – Barb Blair’s DIY calling began with a cabinet makeover that flourished into a full-fledged furniture redesign career. Barb‘s expertise is repurposed furniture which she has available for sale at her store, Knack, in Greenville, SC.

  • Thistlewood Farms – Karianne Wood, also a new member to the FrogTape Blog Squad, started her blog after her family traded in their big city lifestyle for a countryside farmhouse. Her projects include updates within her home, which range from furniture redesign to interior décor. Learn more about Karianne by visiting her blog at http://www.thistlewoodfarms.com/.

“Since FrogTape brand products are ideal for all painting projects – from basic updates to detailed designs – the brand enlisted the Blog Squad to help encourage decorative painting with a painter’s tape that provides professional results,” Osinksi added. FrogTape is the only painter’s tape treated with patented PaintBlock® Technology, which ensures stellar results on the most intricate DIY paint projects. PaintBlock reacts with latex paint which instantly forms a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, creating crisp lines and helps prevent paint bleed. There are a number of tapes available within the popular family of FrogTape products, including FrogTape Multi-Surface, FrogTape Delicate Surface, FrogTape Textured Surface and FrogTape Shape Tape™, the brand’s first painter’s tape cut into unique patterns that allows homeowners to quickly and easily transform a space with paint.
