How to tape before painting walls or millwork


Step 1. Shut off the electricity to the circuits in the room. Remove the covers from receptacles and switches as well as heating and air-conditioning duct covers. Tape over gaps between the boxes and the switch or receptacle. Restore power.

 

Step 2. Align painterís tape with the outside edge of the window molding; press in place. Run the tip of a putty knife along the edge of the tape to seal it so paint canít seep under the edges.

 

Step 3. Align wide painterís tape with the top edge of the baseboard. Run the tip of a putty knife along the inside edge to seal it, but leave the tape parallel to the floor to shield the rest of the baseboard.

 

Step 4. Before painting trim and millwork, tape off edges of the walls. Line up the tape with the edge of the millwork and press it into place.
