candy cane stripes.

It’s possible that I alone have kept the makers of Frog tape in business.  What can I say?  I like stripes.  And it is so easy to make them with some Frog tape, a tape measure, a pencil and some patience.

It all started with this dresser.

I tried it on a desk next.

I was going to paint the next one just like the first, but at the last minute switched the stripes to grey.

And finally, how about some celery green stripes?

    1. I wish I could tell you where to find one, but this one belonged to my grandmother. My mom had it tucked away in the back of a kitchen cupboard, unloved. So I mentioned that if she ever decided to get rid of it, to be sure and give it to me. I had visions of her sending it to Goodwill or some such thing. She said “oh, you can just have it now.” I wrapped it up and carried it home on the plane. It normally resides in my pantry, but I bring it out for photo shoots.
